Google Chrome extensions

I use Google Chrome every day, and while it’s pretty good by itself, I’ve found a few extensions that make the whole much better. Here there are:

Google QuickScroll

I hate when I search for something in Google and then, when I follow the link, I have to search again inside the page to find the snippet of content I wanted. Google QuickScroll solves this.

IReader

Clutter… or awful theme… or tiny font, or all the above. Some pages are almost unbearable to read. IReader makes reading news, blog posts and alike wayyyyy better. It creates a “light box”-like pop-up where all you see it’s the real content. Big plus, if an article is split in several pages, IReader joins all the content together so you don’t have to follow 10 links to read the whole thing.

Keyboard Navigation

With this extension you can follow links without using the mouse. Keyboard Navigation “tags” every link in a webpage with a letter, or letters, then, you type that combination to select the link, and press enter to follow the link. Quick and easy

Lookup Companion for Wikipedia

Finally, Lookup Companion for Wikipedia embeds a minibrowser in your toolbar from which you can search the wikipedia and satisfy your curiosity without leaving the current page you are browsing.
