If you haven’t switched to Google’s Chrome browser, there are lots of reasons for doing so. Chrome is quick, simple and can sync across all of your devices. There’s an Incognito window for private surfing and some safe browsing features that sends warnings before you visit a site suspected of malware or phishing. According to StatCounter, the Chrome browser enjoys 43 percent market share as of June 2013 — higher than all other browsers.
You can also customize Chrome with all sorts of extensions. Here are our favorites to save you time and make you more productive.

For example, this proofreader program can fix commonly confused words such as "then" and "than" or "your" and "you’re" simply by clicking the button on your browser. Oh, and it has a spell-checker as well.
