Best extensions for Chrome

Selection of extensions operating in particular - and not always exclusively - on the browser chrome.

Personal Blocklist

Prevents some sites included in the results of the search engine Google, at the discretion of the user. Sites with popup advertising pages in overcrowded farms, content pages in the background and may disappear from the landscape.
We can then edit the list of blocked sites.
This is now also a feature of the search engine (for registered users) so the extension is no longer useful.

Httpswitchboard

A similar extension but more precise, it is able to block a part of the content such as iframe that are a threat for security.

Naptha

Featuring a character recognition program, this extension allows you to make a selection of text from an image (whose content is a text, such as a photocopy of document) and copy it as a string of characters in a text editor! Demo on the home page of the extension.
By clicking the right mouse button on the image one has a menu with many options, including "Internet Meme" for difficult to read fonts.
The script is based on Ocrad.js, an OCR (Optical Caractère Recognition) system written in JavaScript.

OK Google

Adds a voice interface to the search engine. Provided that a microphone is connected, you can launch queries orally.

Spam report

An extension from Google for reporting sites found in search engine results, and that you think should be deleted (for example those sites with aggressive popups).

Chromepad

A simple notepad in your browser. Take notes while viewing websites.

SeoQuake

Display data about the pages you visit: PageRank, number of backlinks, Alexa rank of the site, etc...

InboxQ

To find answers to questions directly from Twitter.

AutoPatchwork

When an article is splitted into several pages, it loads the next page at the end of the current one to avoid to click to load it.

Remote Desktop

Allows you to control a remote computer, when you have an identification key of course. Irrespective of the operating system.

Better adblock

Unlike adblock, blocks only the sites with annoying ads! This should have been the way adblock works, actually.

Office viewer

The browser allows you to read PDF files, and with this extension, we add different formats from microsoft: the Word, Excel, Powerpoint. It's a heavy download because Native Client is included in the archive. For the compatibility and quality rendering, saying it is in constant progress.
