Let me see if you need a Chrome Extension Manager.
Do you suffer from extension overload in your Google Chrome web-browser? Ever had to turn every single extension off… one by one… for troubleshooting? Then turn them all back on… one by one… afterwards?
I feel your pain.
Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is SimpleExtManager – Google Chrome Extension Manager.
SimpleExtManager is free to download and use.
The Google Chrome Extension Manager… Extension?!
If you’re anything like me, you use a ton of Google Chrome extensions to help me do things faster and more effectively.
The challenge with using so many extensions is that they can be a pain to manage, and too many extensions turn Chrome into a bloated, Jabba The Hut style hog, gobbling up all your resources.
SimpleExtManager is a Chrome extension that allows you to manage all your other extensions easily.
It pops a single icon into your Chrome toolbar, from which you can — with one-click — individually (or in bulk) turn on and off your other Google Chrome extensions.
It’s an absolute dream for troubleshooting, and for quickly accessing those extensions that you only use one in a blue-moon (such as Chrono Download Manager) without having to dig into menu after menu.
You can also group together extensions and turn them on or off with a single click. I use this to use specific extensions on different computers — for instance, I use TunnelBear VPN and TextExpander on my Chromebook but not on my other PCs. SimpleExtManager allows me to quickly swap extensions depending on the machine I’m using.
