With over 700 million users, Google Chrome has become one of the most popular internet browsers in the world today. It has managed to build up this user base by providing robust functionality and an easy-to-use interface that makes navigation extremely simple on almost any device, including laptops, desktops, mobile phones, and tablets. If you’re looking to get the most out of your gaming experience, it’s important to use extensions that are relevant to your specific needs as a gamer. Here are the top 6 must-have Google Chrome extensions for gamers (in no particular order). Top 6 must-have Google Chrome Extensions for Gamers
G2G – Text with anyone on your PC, iPhone, Android phone
G2G is an application that allows you to communicate with friends and colleagues by sending text messages on your computer using their phone number. It requires both a PC or Mac application, as well as mobile applications that work on Apple’s iPhone and Android devices. You can also access G2G through a web interface if you want to send text messages without downloading anything else.
Save to Pocket (Save articles and video clips online to read offline)
This nifty tool enables you to save online articles, videos and other content for offline viewing. It’s especially useful for gamers because it saves content quickly. Simply visit a website or open an app, tap on Pocket and select save to pocket; once saved, all your content will be synced in your pocket account, ready to read or watch anytime (even if you don’t have internet access).
Pushbullet (Send files from your PC to other devices)
Not only does Pushbullet let you send files and links between your PC and your Android devices, but it also mirrors all of your phone notifications on to your desktop. Downloading an app to do any one of these functions is pretty much redundant; downloading a single app that lets you do them all without having to pay a dime? That’s a no-brainer.
TwitchAlerts (Get notifications when streamers you follow start broadcasting!)
One of my favorite sites to visit, not only because of all the gamers on it, but also because of all its neat features. For example, if you’re a League of Legends fan, they have an extension that will tell you when your favorite streamer is going live! No more missing out on starting your stream just to see what’s happening in real time.
Todoist – To Do List & Task Manager (Chrome Extension Port of the best productivity app.)
If you find yourself constantly forgetting to do things, or wishing there was a way to put a task on hold without losing track of it altogether, you should try Todoist. A simple browser extension that lets you add tasks and organize them into projects. The design is clean and intuitive so you can stay focused on what really matters: your work. They have desktop apps for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Android so no matter where you are or what device you use, your tasks will always be with you.
Awesome Screenshot – Capture, Annotate & More…(Screenshot tool by an amazing developer.)
Want to share with your friends what’s happening in your game? Now, you can take a snapshot of any game or movie by just one click. It makes sharing special gaming moments easy and fun. Also, it allows you to draw on it, highlight parts and then add text comments as well as share your screenshots online through various social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr instantly.
