5 Chrome Extensions I use on a daily basis (and one to grow on!)

I love Google Chrome. It is absolutely my browser of choice. I also love Chrome extensions – little nuggets that let me customize my browser experience. These are my favorites and the ones that I pretty much use every day. The greatest thing about these extensions is that I don’t have to go anywhere or open any program or window to use them … they’re always right there in my browser ready to make my life easier!

  1. Awesome Screenshot – capture any part of your window and make annotations (love the blur tool for pictures of students or sensitive info!)
  2. ColorZilla – little eyedropper tool to grab the color from any place in your browser
  3. Page Ruler – quickly draw a ruler on any webpage to measure objects on the page
  4. Tab Scissors – split your browser window at the current tab
  5. Tab Glue – “glue” your split tabs back together

And my most favorite extension of all…

BITMOJI!

This Chrome extension absolutely, positively does not contribute in any way to my effectiveness or efficiency, BUT it brings me so much joy! I often aspire to communicate solely with Bitmojis.

In fact, my superintendent even uses Bitmoji! We’ve made some notecards for him to send to students with his avatar and they LOVE IT!

Ok – your turn! Leave me a comment with your favorite Chrome extensions. I am always looking for new ones to try out!
