With so many new extensions uploaded in the gallery every day, we know it can be tricky to decide which ones to try out. We post a selection of the ones we enjoy in the “Featured” section of the gallery, and from now on we plan to update you regularly on new additions to our recommended extensions.
Here are a few new extensions in the Featured section:
Layers allows you to overlay content like sticky notes, images, videos, tweets and even maps over any website. You can drag and drop your content anywhere on the page. You can also share and discuss whatever you add to the site with your friends across social networks.
The Postrank extension for Google Reader helps you stay up-to-date on the news and posts that matter. The extension aggregates engagement activity such as tweets, comments, and votes from over two dozen social networks and ranks stories based on how much engagement each story has received.
With the Ozone extension, you can get suggestions from fifteen different sources like Google, Amazon, your bookmarks, Gmail, YouTube and more. As you type in the Ozone search box, you can see the suggestions change in real time.
Highlight to Search is a new official Google extension that allows you to search keywords by highlighting instead of typing them into a search box. When you highlight words within a web page, you’ll see a magnifying glass icon appear below the highlighted keywords. Clicking on the icon or the keywords allows you to search easily from the search box that immediately appears.
These are just a few of the new featured Chrome extensions, and you can find many more in the gallery.
