Browser add-ons to turbo charge your surfing

Browser add-ons bring convenience, pizzazz, and efficiency to our surfing - I’ve rounded up some of the best to help you get the most out of the web

Article comments

Browser add-ons bring convenience, pizzazz, and efficiency to our surfing. There are add-ons for saving passwords, ones for automatically sending web pages to our e-reader or smartphone, and ones that help us juggle our social (networking) life. No matter the browser you use – Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera, or Safari – I’ve rounded up some of the best to help you get the most out of the web.


Awesome screenshot

Chrome | Firefox

When you want to take a screenshot of a website and annotate it, better tools are available than the Print Screen button and Paint. Awesome Screenshot stays true to its name and lets you take screenshots of an entire page (no more stitching images together in Word!) or just the part of a page you want. Right from your browser, you can annotate it with rectangles, circles, arrows, and text, and make it look professional by hiding sensitive information with the erasing tool. You can download and attach the result or share it via a link directly.
