Google's Chrome browser is hands down the most used browser on the internet. Don't believe me? Check out this graph from StatCounter. One of the reasons the Chrome web browser far excels its competitors is its ability to seamlessly integrate extensions.

We've assembled the best Google Chrome plugins for digital marketers which will help you optimize your work.
If you're not familiar with the plugins, or extensions, they are small software programs installed in the Chrome toolbar that customize the browsing experience. The plugins appear in the upper-right corner of the toolbar and enable users to make their browser functionality unique to their needs. These Chrome plugins are often narrowly defined and easy to use.
