Best Google Chrome extensions

Here are the best (according to my usage) Google Chrome extensions.

Search by Image (by Google)

This will allow you to search the internet with the image. You just right click on the image and click on search by image. It is more helpful if you don't know the name of a person and you have the picture of him.


Great extension for saving articles to read later or for future reference. Adding tags for saved link will help in finding required links.

Google dictionary

Many new english words we might be learning in web everyday, what if there is extension which will tell the meaning when you highlight the text. This is a must for those who read news and magazines online.

HTML5 Video for YouTube

Getting frustrated with the flash players? This is perfect replacement for video player in youtube. This is infact the best one for those who wanted to download video from youtube. No more fussy softwares needed or processes to be followed. This is the best. Only thing is your browser should be compatible to render video tag in html.

HootSuite Hootlet

You read an article, and what if you want to share that? you need to copy the url and paste that in your status/tweet area. This extension will allows you to share seemlessly to many networks and you can mail/print the article.

Awesome Screenshot

The extension is best suited for taking screen shots of the page or for capturing the required region of the page.

Google Quick Scroll

Google Quick Scroll is a browser extension that helps you find what you are searching for faster. After you click on a Google search result, Quick Scroll may appear on the bottom-right corner of the page, showing one or more bits of text from the page that are relevant to your query. Clicking on the text will take you to that part of the page.

Save to Google Drive

It's good to store images to drive, and you can save pages too

Great extension for checking the web components and to modify them. We can see results instantly.

Hover Zoom

Ofcourse, Photo Zoom for Facebook is the popular zooming extension. But that is limited to facebook. But this works for many sites including wikipedia, twitter. When u hover on image thumbnail, it maximizes.

India - Democracy - Bureaucracy

India a nation with strong Democracy. There has been a well-established democracy in India. This democracy is responsible for the happy and free-living of people in India. Now you people may get a doubt, what has happened to our democracy now. And what is the reason why I’m revolving around the term repeatedly? These would be answered automatically if you go through this article. One of the reasons why India fought for the freedom is to achieve democracy and to end bureaucracy. Before Independence India was run by bureaucrats. And the apex house sitting in Britain would make laws and rules based on the feedback and reports given by the bureaucrats administering India. Due to this Indians suffered a lot and there raised the zeal for self-rule. Moreover, the reports of bureaucrats would always be favoring the interests of Britain and they never bothered about the common people. So to represent the problems faced by the common man and also to solve them we adopted democracy after Indepe…

Atal Innovation Mission - Top 30 Ideas

There is no less of innovation in the young minds of India. To encourage that innovation, AIM (Atal Innovation Mission) has been set up under the NITI Ayog wing. And Atal Tinkering Labs are spread across the country to enable the innovation in the students. After many rounds, top 30 Ideas have been listed here.

Out of these 30 best ideas, a few caught my senses strongly.
Recycling wastewater from automobile garages We often give a water service for our bike/car monthly or weekly. We tend to saw how our vehicle got a new look after servicing.

Smart Tap Just like how there is a measurement for electricity, mobile data that we are consuming, there will be a smart tap that measures water coming through that tap. The best part is that the tap also purifies the water. This idea came from the st…

Controlled water management in India

Proper management of water is important in every country and especially in populated countries like India. It is high time that we need to measure our water usage in our homes. Putting a SMART TAP at the water tank would be a necessity in the near future.  Imagine a digital and eco-friendly village. IOT ( internet of things ) is part of their daily life. And their smart tap is used to measure the water usage in the home. And it is connected to the IOT, continuously sends some data related to water flow and quality of water etc.. The smart tap also measures the water level based on the pressure at the tap. And gives you reminders about the water filling. The village officer can analyze the water usage of each house in that village and he can give some incentives/rewards to the less average water usage. In the other post, we have discussed the Aadhaar based dustbins, giving incentives to the villagers for cleanliness. The incentive-based schemes are not the first time to the Govt. or t…
