  1. Most of these extensions will consume your memory and your bandwidth so you end up with slower browsing … I ended up disabling most of Chrome extensions except for

    – YouTube downloader
    – NoScript (disable JavaScript by default)
    – Visible password on focus

    and I enable these extensions when I need them:

    – Awesome screenshot
    – YSlow
    – Google Speed

  2. YSlow and Shareholic are more useful extensions than others because it helps to connect with social network and hustle the browser.
