Have you ever dreamt of having a really sleek workspace with two computer monitors? Well, Dualless is a great extension that lets you turn your computer monitor into two screens without having to break the bank. It's great for entrepreneurs and freelancers who have one monitor but would like to use it like they have more than one. If you have a lot of tabs open and you would like to organize them neatly into two windows, then you should try this extension.

2. The Great Suspender

Speaking of Tabs, I've been using the Great Suspender for a few months now and it has changed my workflow. Tabs that have not been viewed after a configurable length of time will be automatically suspended in the background. The Great Suspender can help you keep your computer running quickly as it is a lightweight extension that actively reduces Chrome's memory footprint. Memory leaks can be a huge problem for your computer. You may not notice it if you have a lot of RAM, but for those with less computer memory, leaks can cause your browser to run slowly and affect the performance of your computer.

3. Momentum

Momentum is a browser extension that allows you to set a daily focus, eliminate distractions and track your daily tasks. It can be set as your home or start page, and as soon as you start your day, you can set your focus for the day and see it every time you open a new tab. My favorite feature is the quick links feature, which allows you to bookmark and access your most used links by the click of one button. I also love the wonderful imagery it shows me, as well as the motivational quotes it gives me every single day.

It really does make me inspired for those uninspired days. If you saw my computer home screen a couple of weeks ago, you would probably get the opposite of calm, when you saw the number of screenshots I had floating around on my desktop.

4. Go Full Page

Go Full Page helped me with my day-to-day workflow by allowing me with the press of a button to take a full-page screenshot. I always need to take screenshots of inspiration, whether it's for my clients' websites or a completely new business idea that I'm working on. The best feature, though, is that you have the option to save the screenshots as a picture or a PDF.

Whatever your use case is, if you're looking for a quick way to take a screenshot of your full tab and not just little sections, then the Chrome extension Go Full Page is for you.

5. Text to speech voice

If you're like me and you absorb information quicker when you listen to it, instead of reading it on the screen or reading in a book, this one is for you. Intelligent Speaker is an advanced text-to-speech voice software that can read web pages, documents, and PDFs to you. An intelligent speaker reads like a human voice, so it's easy to understand and follow along with your content. Sometimes I just don't have the time to sit at my computer and review a document, so to be able to listen to it like a podcast is so useful.

6. Remove Recommendations

Have you ever went on social media to look for one specific thing just to be drawn into cat videos and get sucked down this social media rabbit hole? With a chrome extension called Remove Recommendations for YouTube VK Facebook, you can now focus on the task you originally went on the platform to do, because this extension allows you to remove those annoying recommendations from YouTube and Facebook from the sidebar. With a simple click, you can hide those useless suggestions and comments to help you not get distracted and take back your time.

7. Note board

Social media isn't the only distraction that stops us from being productive. Sometimes it's all the thoughts that are in our head and the constant balancing act of trying to remember them all. With the Chrome extension called note board, you can work smarter, not harder, in your digital workflow. Note board is a note-taking and mind mapping chrome extension that makes it easy to capture your thoughts, ideas, and information.

You can write notes like sticky notes, save pages with a screenshot to read later or capture any web content. Then you can create Kanban boards to organize your notes in columns and share them with others. This is kind of like sticky notes on steroids.

8. Water reminder

That's why this chrome extension called water reminder will literally remind you to do exactly that. This extension is a great and free way to motivate you to drink more water.

It's easy to install and it places a reminder right at the top of your browser and all you have to do is set the frequency in which you would like to be reminded. As an entrepreneur, sometimes it feels like we are in a never-ending marathon, and in order to get to that finish line, we need to be healthy to do so.
