Google Chrome Plug-ins with Tips and Tricks

There are tens of thousands Google Chrome Plug-ins / Extensions to choose from on the Chrome Web Store, most of them are free. These extensions can be installed on Chrome for Windows, MacOS, Linux, and also Chrome OS-based devices. Although those extensions are very helpful and convenient, they will consume a little bit of resources from your computer. You might want to have a good strategy to choose what should be installed or kept with your Chrome, since you donot want to slow down your machine.

Here comes some of my favorite extensions.

Word Replacer is a simple extension inspired by the popular 'Cloud to Butt'. It does much more than that, allowing you to create entire lists of replacements and customize them to your tastes.





Tampermonkey makes it very easy to manage your userscripts and provides features like a clear overview over the running scripts, a built-in editor, ZIP-based import and export, automatic update checks and browser and cloud storage based synchronization.




If Your environment is managed by Active Directory You can use ADMX templates provided for Google Chrome and disable synchronization of data with Google with SyncDisabled policy.

Alternatively You can just manually set below registry key:

Text
Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\SyncDisabled

The ADMX files have changed some for the sync settings, but you could try a combination of the policy "Restrict which users are allowed to sign in to Google Chrome" along with "Disable synchronization of data with Google".
