Google Chrome Toolbar Extensions
I started using Chrome over a year ago and I’m always finding useful Google-Chrome extensions that make browsing the internet so much easier.
One of my favorite chrome extensions is SEO Site Tools because of the vast amount of information you can access from one central location just from that one little icon located on the Chrome toolbar.
For example, SEO Site Tools displays the Google Page Rank of any site you navigate to in the Chrome browser. You can also see Alexa Rank, meta data, social media metrics and incoming links to any domain.

Here are just a few Chrome extensions that I’ve done video tutorials for:
- Learn how to use the StumbleUpon Toolbar for Chrome
- Create gorgeous email signatures with Wise Stamp
- Use these handy Scoop.it Extension to Curate Content
- Manage Social Media Shares with Bufferapp
- Explore the Diigo BookMark Chrome Extension
- Track video URL’s with the YouTube Title Adder
Managing Extensions in your Chrome toolbar
Search the Chrome Web Store for the chrome extensions and apps that best suit your needs, and pretty soon your chrome toolbar will be filled with those handy little icons. Every now and then, you’ll find one that you’re not too impressed with or you might need to disable an extension if you’re performing a specific task.
For example, when I’m listening to music on Google Play, I turn the Feedly extension off because it gets in the way of the volume controls! I wish I could just move Feedly to the left a smidge, but it’s just as easy for me to disable it and activate it later, when I’m ready to use it again.

In this video I give you a quick tour of my Chrome extensions toolbar and how to find great apps in the Chrome Web Store. I also share my tip for an easy way to manage all of your Chrome Extensions at once!
Hi Guys it’s Ileane! Over the past few months I started using the Google Chrome browser. Now I really love this browser and one reason I do is because of the vast amount of extensions that I can install.
For example here a few of my favorites:
- Gmail plus
- SEO Site Tools extension
- Alexa Toolbar and
- Let’s not forget my favorite for Twitter is Buffer.
Whenever I want to find a new extension I open up a blank tab and I go to the Chrome Webstore.
In the Webstore you’re going to see the featured extensions you’re also going to see: favorites; ones that are paid applications (I really don’t use any of those so I can’t speak on them); the Staff Picks and these are usually the free ones.
I just want to give you one little tip that I use to manage my extensions
Once you’ve downloaded an extension it’ll appear in your Chrome Bookmarks Bar. You can shortcut click on that extension and either disabled it or uninstall. But here’s the tip because every extension that you have installed does not appear on your chrome bookmarks bar. Normally what you have to do is go to your little wrench, find your extensions under tools, and go through the list.
For example we talked about the Zemanta extension on my blog the other day and you’ll notice I have been installed but it does not appear on my Chrome toolbar. So I go into my extensions and I would disable it from here.
So what I do in order to keep that handy so I don’t always have to go into the wrench – go to tools, go to extensions…
I just bookmarked my extensions so that I always have access to them at any time. And I did the same thing with “History”.
If I ever want to go through my browsing history I just click that on.
Just saves you a few extra steps so you don’t have to always go back over to the wrench to look for what you need.
