#1: Group Multiple Tabs Into a Single Tab With OneTab

Some of the best tools are the simplest ones, and you can’t get much simpler than OneTab. When you click the toolbar icon, the tool will pull all of your browser tabs into a simple list under a single tab. You can then organize, sort, and save that tab for later.

#3: Edit Your Content With Grammarly

Grammarly is a free, simple, powerful editing app that hides on your browser toolbar and edits your work as you write. As with many of these apps, there are both free and paid versions available.

The free version offers a more advanced spelling, punctuation, and grammar check than Microsoft Word. You can paste your copy into the editor on the Grammarly website, upload a document, or just let the extension edit as you create social media posts in whatever program you’re using.

The app runs in the background, and if your copy is clean, you’ll see a green icon. If your copy needs work, you’ll see a red icon along with suggestions.

If you opt for the paid version, you get more robust features like style and sentence structure suggestions, vocabulary enhancement tips, and a plagiarism detector. You also have the option to submit your work to one of their professional proofreaders.

#6: Track Email Opens With RocketBolt

RocketBolt works a little differently from other extensions. The extension itself doesn’t do anything when you click it; but you need to have it installed to unlock its functionality. When used in conjunction with Gmail, RocketBolt lets you track individual email open and click-through rates.

Marketers are used to this in programs like MailChimp and Emma, but those programs don’t give you that information on the individual level. Why does this matter? Because you can see if a specific person is reading your email.

RocketBolt lets you see who has opened your email and where they opened it from within the app’s dashboard.

At the paid level, you can track what individuals are saying on social media, and if and when they visit your website, providing unique feedback on how different campaigns are working.

Conclusion

These extensions are powerful tools on their own; however, a pro trick is to install them and start using them together. For example, collect your tabs in OneTab and pull them into a single page with annotations with Evernote Web Clipper.
