Chrome Extensions are small programs that add new features to your browser and personalize your browsing experience. Unlike apps, they’re always available, no matter what website you’re on. By using extensions, you can customize Google Chrome with features you like, while keeping your browser free of things that you don't use. By using Chrome extensions students can make the process of finding, organizing, and citing information a million times easier. Teachers can use these extensions for teaching to all learning modalities.
