5 Great Chrome Extensions That I Use

Last updated: October 9, 2023

Here are a few extensions that I use every day in my web browser.

These Chrome extensions help me be more productive.

They work for both Google Chrome (most popular) and Brave web browser (what I use).

Send to Kindle

This extension lets you send long or short articles to your Kindle for free. I typically use this for very long articles and I love it. I have used it for many years.

You must have your Kindle hooked up to WiFi, but it is an easy and free way to get web content to read on your mobile Kindle device.

Buster: Captcha Solver

I am not sure how well this works, but it does seem like I fill out less CAPTCHAs.

Cloudflare, which is a company that I really like, is trying to get rid of Captchas. But until then, tools like this are neat.

I don’t care about cookies

I hate it when I go to a webpage and they notify me about their cookies! This extension gets rid of most of those notices automatically.

Birthday Calendar Exporter for Facebook

This is a great way to get the birthdays of your friends into your Google Calendar or other calendar system. I just used it for the first time recently, and it worked great.

Bypass Paywalls

This one is a bit hard to install, so I saved it for last! Theoretically, it should allow you to read more articles online. I’m not sure how legal it is to use this, so try it at your own risk.

I like this because I’m a news junkie. I read a ton of news, and I’m not always logged in to see the articles. This extension helps to skip some paywalls and article limits from popular news sites, like the New York Times.


These extensions are really helpful for a tech savvy, news-obsessed nerd like me.
