38 Chrome Extensions You Desperately Need in B2B

Google Chrome is the most used web browser according to some surveys. But even the best browser has some little extras that make it even better! That's why we will show you the most useful Chrome plugins that will simplify your everyday work in B2B. You know how important efficiency and productivity are in business – especially if you’re working in sales or marketing! With the right Chrome extensions, you can optimize your processes and make the most out of your precious time.

Now you only want to know: Which plugins suit you and your job best? In order to answer that question for you, we’ve collected the fanciest Chrome extensions for you. Thematically sorted, you can choose for yourself which plugins will do the job for you or your team.

But be careful: Extensions can also slow down your browser. Make sure that you only install the most useful plugins!

What Makes a Good Chrome Extensions?

A good plugin is characterized by a few factors. First and foremost: Usability! It must do what it promises and be easy to use. Otherwise, you simply won’t use it and it will be left unused in a pile of extensions. Before you set up three new plugins, check if one extension combines all solutions of the other three – this will also save you space.

Extra Tip: When choosing your Chrome extensions, make sure that they are time-saving, resource-saving and quality-assuring.

All in all, a plugin should help you, not hold you back. If you waste too much time with handling or a thousand extensions, it won't bring you any benefits in the long run.
