    Default Useful Extensions

    This list is not complete, and i dont think i am going to be doing any more updates on it, however i do check on the forums now and again, so if anyone else wants to post reviews on a particular catagory of extension, feel free, and i will post links to it in the main body (this post)

    This list will only contain extensions that:
    A) are generalized enough to work on a variety of websites (if applicable)
    B) are useful to a large number of people.
    C) preform a certain function, that chrome cant.
    D) is hosted in googles extensions gallery
    E) Works on the latest version of chrome, and is free of major errors.

    Anyone is welcome to nominate an extension below, although the requirements are a LINK, and a brief description of what the extension does, and why you think it deserves nomination.

    Each extension will be critiqued on the basis of: resource usage, functionality, Design, and Popularity. Then given a total score averageing out the previous factors.

    Tabs
    - Tab Organization - Programs that display your currently open tabs, and allows you to search through them more easily.
    -- Vertical Tabs - 4.1/5
    -- ToManyTabs - 4.0/5



    -- Modify Tab Ordering - Arranges tabs from newest to oldest
    -- Reload All Tabs - reloads every open tab (good if chrome crashes)
    -Tab Saving
    -- Tab Sync - saves all the tabs for a browsing session


    -Url Shortening
    -- 2ze.us URL Shortener - 4.5/5
    -- ChromeMUSE - 4.2/5
    -- Goo.gl URL Shortener - 4/5
    -- Url Shortener by AniKanGasKan - 3/5

    Broken Extensions - any extensions I cant get to work ill post here.. to see if someone else has had better luck.
    -- Tab Menue - displays a vertical list of tabs, and allows users to search through them.
    -- Recent Tabs - displays your most recently used tabs in a menue. Warning, crashes chrome every time chrome is opened, (to fix, i quickly opened an incognito window, and closed the regular window, then uninstalled the extension

    ill take a look, and add more extensions when i get home, if im not to tired, inwhich case itl have to wait till tomorrow mourning.

    Btw guys dont bother suggesting extensions just yet, unless your willing to do all the gruntwork for it.., if you want to do an extension, post it here as a seperate post, with the following info, in this order (follow this template)


    EX:
    Goo.gl URL Shortener

    Overall Rating: 4/5 Pros: Auto-copy url, no redirect Cons: Page doesnt allow for Custom urls

    Preformance Rating: 3.5/5, Idles at about 5k memory usage, but can go up to 7k. No notable cpu spikes, even when in use.

    Functionality: 4/5, Really short Url, automatically copied. Un-customizable Urls

    Design: 4,5/5, simple design, small Un-Intrusive window when used.

    Popularity: 24,168 users - Weekly installs: 4,850


    Description: This extension, is extremely useful, for people who frequently write down, or send urls through a program with no cut/paste functionality. The url given is short and easy to remember (goo.gl/(4 random CASE Sensitive characters)), making it a great extension to install. the only real downside is the inability of the website to do custom Urls.

    Url Shortener by AniKanGasKan

    Overall Rating: 3/5

    Preformance Rating: 3.5/5, takes little to no memory to idle, but takes about 12k when in use, plus the network usage to load a full webpage.

    Functionality: 4/5, offers multiple sites to shorten, creats new tab with url shorteners homepage when used.

    Design:2/5, to many options on click, opens new page with your url.

    Popularity: 32 users - Weekly installs: 32

    Description: Just about the only things this shortener brings to the table are, low memory usage, when not in use, and ability to customize your urls(with some of the services. This extension would be good for a user who barely uses a url shortening service, as it wont take anything away from your memory when not in use, and wont increase chromes startup time any.

    TooManyTabs

    Overall Rating: 4/5, Pros: Visually appealing, and many options.

    Preformance: 3/5, uses about 7mb memory to idle, and 20mb after use. also slows down each tab slightly, as it takes screenshots of each tab for visual searching.

    Functionality: 4.5/5 Allows for visual viewing of tabs, and for searching through them easily.

    Design: 4.5/5 a little extrusive, but definitely well designed, with everything easy to find.

    Description: To many tabs is a great extension to use, if you have a computer built within the last 10 years. it features an elegant design, combined with multiple features and customizations. Its only downside is the large amount of Memory, and cpu needed to maintain it
