5 Web Browser Extensions You Need in Your Life

I spend a lot of time on the computer – especially on the internet, and have come to find a few favorite tools that make my life easier. Even better, you don’t have to do a thing after the initial one-click set up to maintain the ease (and life changing-ness)! What I’m talking about are Web browser extensions or plug-ins, and my favorites are absolutely FREE.

Are you ready to have your internet life changed? Here are the 5 Web browser extensions you need in your life.

The 5 Web browser extensions you need in your life!


All my fellow online shopping lovers, where you at?! Honey is THE best plug-in to add to your browser if you’re looking for a deal. Rather than having to go out and hunt for coupon codes, this one automatically searches the Web and applies the best discount code (if one exists), to maximize your savings.

Evernote Web Clipper

How many times do you see something online that you want to refer back to later? Whether it’s a recipe, an article, image, or even screenshots of a page, Evernote Web Clipper saves the things you’re interested in to your Evernote account, making it easier to refer back later, whether online or offline, and across your devices (i.e. computer, phone, tablet).


Momentum is my favorite way to open a new tab in my browser. Rather than bringing up a standard search page or a new tab showing my most visited sites, Momentum greets you with the time, weather, and an inspirational photo and quote. You can also set a focus for the day and quickly add things to your to-do list so you don’t forget. And each time you open a new tab, it’s there to remind you. Inspiration and productivity all in one!

Amazon Assistant

I think we can all agree that Amazon is the best. And Amazon Assistant makes the experience even better. With this browser extension, you can add items on a website to your wish list (even if they’re not sold on Amazon), see their “Deal of the Day,” and compare products and pricing, so you get the most bang for your buck.


Grammar and/or spelling mistakes happen to the best of us, especially when we’re in a hurry. But Grammarly lets you rest easy, knowing that whatever you’re typing (and likely planning to post or submit somewhere) will be error-free.


What are your favorite extensions and plug-ins for your browser?

    I’ve never heard of Honey, but I use Ebates and it sounds similar-you just install the browser add on and it not only gets your coupons from all over the internet, but also lets you earn cash back!
