Google Chrome has a function that may be unknown to many users: install extensions. These are applications (similar to those found in our mobile phone) and that aim to improve the user experience. For example, there are extensions to watch movies on Chrome. All of them can be downloaded directly to our computer through the Chrome Web Store. Remember that you can check if an extension is safe before installing it.
There are a lot of extensions, but which ones are the most curious?
Are you a lover of classic video games? This extension will allow you to play some of the older games that you may have played many years ago as a child. In addition, it does not occupy even 50 KB, so it will take up practically no memory.
We can play some classics like Mahjong Solitaire, Dragon Ball Z, Pacman or Street Fighter. You can download it through this link.
Google Arts and Culture
The Google Arts and Culture extension will allow us to observe many works of art that were made centuries ago by authors such as Vincent Van Gogh or Monet, among many others.
The different tables are updated every day. If you are interested in a specific work, you can click on it to learn more about the painting.
Have you ever been curious to know what it would be like to be in the shoes of a DJ? Then the Chrome You DJ extension is the one for you.
At first it may seem quite complex to use since there are many different functions and options, but it is all to practice to gradually master the matter.
Drawings for coloring and painting
Within this extension you can find a large number of drawings that can be printed for children to paint.
If you prefer, you can also paint online thanks to a tool. If you are interested, you can download it using this link.
We all know that many applications have added the “dark mode” function in order to reduce the brightness of the screen, using darker colors. The Dark Reader extension serves precisely that.
It is ideal to take care of our visual health, since it converts any Internet portal with a dark theme, making the colors brighter, with more contrast and making everything easier to read at night.
You can adjust different parameters such as brightness, contrast, text fonts or use filters, among other things.
This extension is ideal for people who are very easily distracted. Surely you know someone who when studying is not concentrated and is easily distracted.
Thanks to the Forest extension , the user will be able to make a list of the web pages that he does not want to use during the period that he needs to be concentrated, to avoid unnecessary distractions.
In this way, we can create a kind of black list that will help us not have access to all those web portals that may cause us a distraction.
Today with teleworking, many people spend hours at home in front of the computer. It is very important to give our eyes some rest from time to time, and the Chrome eyeCare extension helps us with that.
With it we can configure a series of alerts that will notify us from time to time to take a break. We ourselves can choose the time interval in which these alarms will go off.
It has several customization options , since we can choose different sounds for the alarm, personalize the alert message or send us a notification.
