UPDATE: It looks like Hoverzoom is now using malware 🙁 Oh well.
I’ve been using Google Chrome since it was released a few years ago.
Here are some extensions that I think librarians and your everyday civilian would appreciate:
Hoverzoom – This previews thumbnails to their larger sizes. Useful for Pinterest, Creative Commons Searches, and Google Image search.
AdBlock – Speaks for itself. This prevents pop-ups from ad sites. It can also be useful to block tracking.
dotepub – This extension creates an eBook out of any webpage. I don’t use this one as much, as I usually just print out PDF versions of webpages.
Hobbit: A Journey of Middle Earth – A promo extension, but provides a really fun way to look at the map of a Middle Earth for the Peter Jackson flicks.
Library Extension – This allows you to see if book on Amazon is available locally. It’s like a free version of book burro.
More to come…
