There are a TON of SEO specific tool extensions that exist already. And most of them do the same thing as the others. However, when it comes to working online nothing can make your job easier than plugins/addons for your browser to help speed things along outside of the routine SEO toolbars. I recently came across four extensions that are proving to be quite useful and have functionality that no SEO extensions currently have.
Ever see something you wanted to make a note of online and share it? But you didn’t have the screengrab capability at the moment, or maybe you did but you didn’t want to pick the right color of text or make sure the text was in the right position? Note Anywhere allows you to literally leave a note anywhere on any page:
This extension also keeps track of how many notes you placed on a page:
Cross browser compatibility is something that should never get overlooked, no matter how you feel about IE:
Easy to install and even easier to use…unless IE breaks it.
Gone are the days of copy and pasting from a site into word in order to get the word count from a page or paragraph. After you get this installed you just have to highlight, right click and then click on the Word Count Tool option:
Short section? You bet, the tool is really easy to use and really cuts down on the copy and paste and then remove any formatting issue in Word you get from doing that. This is a much easier way to get this information.
Okay, all this talk and love for Chrome and I bet you think we’re ignoring the elephant in the room:
While I can say I rarely have several tabs open, I can see the appeal for people that are tab addicts.
If using one tab isn’t your style or if you have removed a lot of the sites you were looking at, in order to get out of the one tab you just have to click “restore all” and everything will go back to the way it was.
Ever used these extensions before? Have you alternatives or other Chrome tools we should check out? Let us know, we’d love to hear about them!
