As Google Chrome has risen to become one of the most popular and common web browsers, you must be making the most out of extensions and tools so that you can save time and hassle. One reason for its huge success and popularity is due to the wide availability of extensions; if you can think of an extension there’s a high chance it exists. However, adding too many extensions can cause your browser to grind to a halt due to the requirements needed to run them in the background. This guide includes 7 of our favourite extensions here at Thunderbolt Digital, a Surrey marketing agency. 



Grammarly is an essential tool for writing and publishing work/tasks. Maintaining correct grammar is essential when it comes to professionalism, Grammarly acts as the perfect tool for freelancers or writers that need to communicate a message clearly and concisely. Grammarly scans through your writing and within seconds highlights grammatical errors and mistakes, making it the perfect tool for users who have no one to proofread their work.
