It’s essentially free money. Try Capital One Shopping .
2. Grammarly — catch spelling and grammar errors
Grammarly is a mistake-catching extension that makes sure your writing is easy to read and error free. Anytime you write on Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr, and hundreds of other sites, Grammarly notifies you of grammar and spelling errors. This one is a no-brainer for anyone who writes professional emails, essays for schools, or blogs about potatoes that look like Channing Tatum. Why risk not having it?
3. Boomerang — schedule email sending
Want to appear at the top of your boss, professor, or client’s inbox when they’re most likely to read it (8am)? Use Boomerang to automatically send a pre-drafted email based on a time that you select. You can also use Boomerang to remind you to read certain emails at a later date or time.
4. OneTab — combine tabs into a single list
Are you a tab hoarder or have memory issues when you use Chrome? OneTab converts all of your tabs into a list in a single tab. Once you’re ready to revisit those Economist articles you’ll “definitely read at a time that’s not now”, navigate to your OneTab and open each tab individually or restore them all at once. Using OneTab reduces your memory by 95% and helps relieve anxiety induced by clutter.
5. Gmail — undo sent emails
What’s the only thing worse than eating Kimchi on a crowded flight? Accidentally hitting “reply-all” and spamming your colleagues. Don’t be that guy — save yourself with the new “undo send” feature that gmail quietly launched. To enable this feature, navigate to your settings and you’ll find the option half-way down the page.
