Default Chrome Extensions

Know of any helpful extensions for Chrome browsers? I only have one installed. It's called "Search the current site" and it does exactly that using Google or another search engine. A lot easier than going to Google and having typing something like "site:desktoppublishingforum.com" and then the search term.

I use AdBlock Plus and Grammarly for Chrome But I try to be considerate of sites that really depend on their ads to provide a good cheap or free service and put them into the exceptions, allowing ads to show up.

To be really considerate I click on some of the ads on sites I find useful. It's possible that it is the ads that pay to keep the site live and without some clicks many sites would close down.

FWIW, I tested Grammarly for Chrome against Ginger for Chrome and found Ginger to be more helpful. But I didn't install either in my primary browser (Vivaldi) because they interfere with spell check, and there is no easy way to turn them on and off.
