Chrome extensions are small software programs that can modify and enhance the functionality of the Chrome browser. In order to write them, programmers use web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Luckily, we don’t have to create them – we can just enjoy them! 

Extensions can enhance the page you’re on with relevant links and information. There are literally thousands of them ranging from extensions that let you add new features to your browser.
