Being a marketer, one should know about the chrome extensions that are most recommended. Extensions are small software programs that can modify and enhance the functionality of the Chrome browser. You write them using web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Extensions have little to no user interface. Extensions bundle all their files into a single file that the user downloads and installs. This bundling means that, unlike ordinary web apps, extensions don’t need to depend on content from the web.There are 100+ of extensions available for distinct uses butI AM GOING TO SHARE THE BEST CHROME EXTENSIONS FOR ONLINE MARKETERS.
