- 1 Here are the Top 10 Chrome/Firefox Extensions that can make your work easy
A browser extension is a small software module for customizing a web browser. Browsers typically allow a variety of extensions, including user interface modifications, ad blocking, and cookie management. Browser plug-ins are a separate type of module. The main difference is that extensions are usually just source code, but plug-ins are always executables (object code).
As of 2020, plug-ins have been deprecated by most browsers, while extensions are widely used. The most popular browser, Google Chrome, has thousands of extensions available but only one plug-in: the Adobe Flash Player that is disabled by default.
Despite the fact that extensions can be dangerous, some of them are really useful, and that’s why you probably wouldn’t want to abandon them completely. I continue to use about a half-dozen of them, and I know for sure that two of them have the aforementioned permission “to read and change.”
So let’s get further with our top 10 list of Chrome/Firefox Extensions that can make your work easy.
