Enhancer for YouTube browser extension

BROWSER, Chrome Extension, TOOLS

This is the browser extension I’m the most proud of because it is one of the featured add-ons for Firefox (and was Mozilla’s Pick of the Month in December 2016), is recommended by the Opera Add-ons Team, and has been the 40th extension for Microsoft Edge published in the Windows Store when the submission process was still a restricted capability. I’m also proud because it is used by hundreds of thousands users worldwide who say that it greatly improves their user experience on YouTube™ thanks to the features it brings:

Ads removal

Overlay ads (images, text) and in-stream video ads (displayed before, during, or after the main video) can be removed automatically or at any time even if they are non-skippable. It is possible to whitelist channels to not automatically remove ads from videos made by your favorite creators to permit them to earn revenues from ads and so to continue to produce videos you like.

Playback speed control

The playback speed can be easily controlled with the mouse wheel and the default playback speeds proposed by YouTube™ (0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.25, 1.5, 2) can be overriden for a finer control (e.g. 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc…). A default playback speed can also be set and it will be automatically selected when a video starts playing. It is also possible to control the speed of ads!

Playback quality selection

A preferred playback quality can be set and it will be automatically selected when a video is loaded.

Volume level control

The volume level can be easily controlled with the mouse wheel.

Auto-pause and preloading

Videos can be automatically paused when they are opened in background tabs, and preloading can be disabled when videos are automatically paused. Videos in playlists can be ignored.

Pinned player and detached player

The player can be automatically pinned on screen to keep it visible when the page is scrolled down, and it can also be detached to permit you to watch the video in a minimalist browser window.

Loop, filters, cinema mode, larger player, custom themes, custom script, and more…

In brief, tons of features, highly customizable, and easy-to-use extension. See How to use Enhancer for YouTube™ to get the most out of it.

Enhancer for YouTube™ can be installed on Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Edge, so if you are using one of these browsers give it a try, click the button that corresponds to yours then click on either the “Add to Firefox” or “Add To Chrome” or “Add to Opera” or “Get the app” button.

Save any Images and Files to Google Drive or Dropbox directly with Ballloon

BROWSER, Chrome Extension, INTERNET, ONLINE STORAGE

Ballloon (yes, with an extra l) is an amazing Google Chrome extension that lets you save all kinds of images, PDF files, hyperlinks etc., to Cloud Storage service accounts with just one click. If you open any webpage and come across a file or image, just right click on it to save it directly to your cloud storage account (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.). The file does not even need to be downloaded to your PC to be saved to your cloud storage. In fact, if the file is large, you can just click on it to start the transfer process, and then even if you shutdown your PC, the file will be transferred to your cloud storage directly. There are no intermediate save locations, no extraneous permissions, or anything of that sort. Just one click, and it sends off the file to your cloud storage account.

Ballloon basically works by adding hover-over icons over images and relevant options to the right-click context menus of hyperlinks and PDF files. These can be then used to directly save these files to your cloud storage accounts. You can even change the default location Ballloon uses to save stuff to your cloud storage accounts. It practically works with any online image, hyperlink or PDF file link out there. Currently, Ballloon works with Google Drive and Dropbox, with support for OneDrive and Box coming soon. Sounds like something you could use? Head past the break to find out more.

Ballloon: Installation And Setting Up Your Cloud Accounts

Adding Ballloon to Google Chrome is just like adding any other Chrome extension. All you have to do is search for Ballloon in the Chrome web store (or click here), and click Add. Once you do that, a little balloon icon shows up in Chrome’s icon bar. However, you still need to do a little work before things get working. Here’s a step by step tutorial:

Step 1: Before you can start using Ballloon, you need to set up your cloud storage accounts to work with it. To do that, firstly you need to log-in via your Google account. Doing so is really simple, and all you have to do is enter your Google Account credentials and authorize Ballloon to access your account. Pretty standard stuff in here.

Step 2: Once you’re logged in via your Google Account, Ballloon’s extension icon changes from Grey to Blue. This extension icon provides one click access to all the settings related to your Ballloon account. Apart from this, it also shows some cool stuff, like random (and awesome) photos from artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, access to your cloud settings, user feedback, files scheduled for your cloud (called departures) and things like that. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Step 3: Next up, you need to configure your cloud storage accounts (Google Drive and Dropbox) to work with Ballloon. To do so, simply click the extension, horizontally scroll to the cloud settings section and click on it. You should get a screen like this:

Save any Images and Files to Google Drive or Dropbox directly with Ballloon (3)

Step 4: As illustrated by the above screenshot, the screen above lets you connect your Dropbox and Google Drive accounts to Ballloon and configure the default folder used by it to save stuff to your cloud storage accounts. Connecting your Dropbox and/or Google Drive accounts to Ballloon is extremely easy, and just involves the standard API authorization. Once the access is granted, your cloud storage account details show up.

That’s it. Ballloon is now connected to your Dropbox and Google Drive accounts, and is now ready to work its one click save mojo.

How To Save Images, PDF links, Hyperlinks With Ballloon?

Now that Ballloon is up and running, it’s time to see this little extension in action. As mentioned before, Ballloon lets you save web hosted images of all sorts, hosted PDF files, and hyperlinks to your cloud storage accounts with just a click or two. Let’s see how:

Saving A Web Hosted Image:

Step 1: Go to any image hosting website, or any website that has any kind of image on it. Hover your mouse pointer over the image that you want Ballloon to save. Once you do that, you’ll see two small icons (Dropbox and Google Drive) on the top right corner of the image. Check out the animated graphic below:

Save any Images and Files to Google Drive or Dropbox directly with Ballloon (1)

Step 2: Now, all you have to do to save this image to your Dropbox or Google Drive account is just click on the respective icon. Once you do that, this image will instantly “fly” to your cloud storage account, all thanks to Ballloon.

You can even check the image’s upload status by clicking the extension’s icon and navigating to the Departures section. That’s it. See, it literally takes one click. How cool is that?

Save Hyperlinks and Online PDF Files Directly to Google Drive and Dropbox:

Step 1: Go to any website that has any kind of hyperlink on it. Or go to any website that’s having a downloadable PDF hosted on it, with a download link.

Step 2: Right click on any hyperlink or PDF download link that you want to save to your cloud storage account, select Save to > Google Drive or Dropbox.

Save any Images and Files to Google Drive or Dropbox directly with Ballloon (6)

That’s it. Once you click on a selected cloud service, the hyperlink will be instantly saved as a web page (pointed to by the hyperlink), and the PDF will be saved as a, well, PDF to your selected cloud service. One click, is all it takes. Now that, is awesome.

Ballloon: Summary of Features

  • Literally, one click saving of web hosted images, PDFs and hyperlinks to Google Drive and Dropbox.
  • Amazingly simple and efficient.
  • Secure, as your files are directly saved to your cloud storage accounts.
  • Works with a large number of websites.

Google Chrome Extension for PDF to Image convertion

BROWSER, Chrome Extension, INTERNET

Images are easier to view, especially if you have an older device that doesn’t and cannot support PDF documents, there’s no apps. Reading PDF documents in these types of situations requires you to convert them into a different file format first, and that’s exactly what the following apps and extensions for Chrome can do, convert PDF into images.

So lets look at these extensions and apps in details.

PDF to Image Converter

pdf-to-image-converter-google-chrome

First app that we’re gonna talk about is called PDF to Image Converter and it has two work modes.

First it can be used as an image extractor. This is useful if you have a PDF document with embedded images. This tool will scan the PDF document and extract images out of it. The page scanner on the other hand will take an entire page, doesn’t matter what it’s made of, and it will convert it into images that you can afterwards download either individually (1 image for 1 page) or all at once. JPEG image format is supported.

Get PDF to Image Converter.

PDF Tools

pdf-to-image-converter-google-chrome-1

What exactly am I looking at on the image above you must be wondering. What you’re looking at is an image rendering of a completed PDF to image conversion.

You get a preview of the converted document after which you’ll be able to download it as a compressed archive. Each page is gonna be converted into its own image. Images can be JPEG with 3 different levels of quality. Setup is very simple and straightforward, it shouldn’t be an issue. Simply select the PDF document that you’d like to see converted and wait for PDF tools to do its thing.

Get PDF Tools.

Online PDF Tools

pdf-to-image-converter-google-chrome-2

Online PDF Tools is actually a set of PDF tools for editing and processing PDF files. You get a converter that converts any file (document) into PDF, PDF merge tool, PDF rotate tool.

What interests us, the PDF to JPEG tool can be seen in action on the image above. Notice that a very long list of formats is supposedly supported, but we discovered that there’s no way to select any of the mentioned image formats, only JPEG is supported. After loading up a PDF document, you’re gonna have to wait a bit until the file is processed. Waiting time depends on the size of the file. Once the conversion finishes you’re gonna be taken to the converted image file.

Bookmark Extensions For Google Chrome

BROWSER, Chrome Extension, INTERNET

Here’s a list of  bookmark extensions for Google Chrome which you can use to manage your bookmarks more effectively. With the extensions that we’re gonna be talking about, you can do everything from getting a handle over your bookmarks when you have a lot of them to simply protecting your privacy by adding password protection to bookmarks which can then only be accessed with a password. Let’s start.

Secure Bookmarks for Google Chrome:

Considering that lately our privacy has been under attack from all sides we thought we should start with an extension that can help you password protect bookmarks.

Chrome-bookmark-extensions-secure-bookmarks

Secure Bookmarks creates a unique bookmarking area where you can store bookmarks, just like you would with the regular Chrome bookmark toolbar. The only difference between the two is that Secure Bookmarks allows you to put a password so that when you click on its icon from the top right corner, instead of showing saved bookmarks, potential intruder is gonna be asked for a password.

Bookmark Sentry

Bookmarks Sentry is a bookmark scanner that searches for dead bookmarks and duplicates.

Chrome-bookmark-extensions-bookmarks-sentry

When you have hundreds of saved bookmarks, it can be difficult to go over them all to check and see if there are duplicates or if some of them are dead. Bookmark Sentry will scan your bookmark collection and let you know if there are any duplicates or dead links.

Get Bookmark Sentry.

Neater Bookmarks

Here’s another Chrome extension that’s useful for those of us who have a lot of bookmarks saved. Neater Bookmarks will show all of the bookmarks that you’ve added to the bookmarks toolbar in a hierarchical manner.

Chrome-bookmark-extensions-bookmarks-neater

You can see on the image above how it works. Showing bookmarks this way isn’t that impressive; what’s interesting and quite a bit useful is the search tool at the top. Searching bookmarks allow you to find what you need more easily, when you have a lot of bookmarks.

Get Neater Bookmarks.

iCloud Bookmarks

With iCloud Bookmarks you can share bookmarks that you have saved in Chrome with browsers on Mac, iPhone, iPod, iPod touch, and even Windows PCs.

Chrome-bookmark-extensions-bookmarks-icloud

This extension only works with Windows 7 and Windows 8, and you have to have iCloud installed in order for the bookmark sync to work. After installation, you’ll go through setup where you’ll be given detailed instructions on how to set everything up.

Get iCloud Bookmarks.

Recent Bookmarks

Have you ever found yourself in the position of wanting to visit a bookmark that you just saved the other day, but you’re unable to find it? Well Recent Bookmarks extensions for Chrome can help you out in these types of situations.

Chrome-bookmark-extensions-bookmarks-recent

Recent Bookmarks will show recently saved bookmarks so that they can be accessed more easily. Just click on the Recent Bookmarks icon from the top right corner toolbar and you’ll be presented with a list of bookmarks that you recently saved.

Get Recent Bookmarks.
