Step 1: The Chrome Store
Visit this website: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/apps
This is the chrome store. It feature apps and extensions. Allowing you to maximize your google ecosystem. Familiarize yourself with this website, and check back often. Google constantly renews "featured" and devs continue to create new and great apps.
Step 2: Download
Find an extension you would like to use. Most extensions should be free, so no transaction should be required. Once you've found the extension you want, click free, then install. It will now download. Once the download is completed. You will be prompted to "add your extension" click yes, and you have successfully installed an extension. Often, when you install and extension, the developers website will open in a new tab and prompting you to donate. Ignore this.
Step 3: Recommended Extensions
Here are my extensions that I recommend:
Double click on any word, and it will define it. Quite handy and very easy
Checker plus for gmail
A quick-look at your email, instead of having to go to the website. The extension is fully fledged, meaning you are able to view, delete, reply, etc, all within the extension. Very useful
If you have an android tablet that is unable to send and receive texts, use mighty text. It'll also sync to your computer.
Have fun checking out extensions!
