Chrome: If you’re a travel junkie — or, better yet, need a little inspiration to plan your next trip — you’re going to love the Chrome extension Random bnb. It’s incredibly simple, but it does a great job of reminding you that there are gorgeous places in the world you can stay at right now and, in some cases, not even spend a small fortune for an incredible experience. You just have to find them, and that’s where Random bnb comes in.
Windows: When Microsoft debuted its new “Timeline” feature in the Windows 10 April 2018 update, I was a bit bummed to find that this feature — which you can use to see what you were up to on any given day — isn’t very helpful unless you’re using the Edge browser.

So much so that it has replaced the pretty Chrome Delight and Earth View from Google Earth extensions I've been using whenever I open a new tab.

Suppose you're trying to troubleshoot a family member's computer, you want to show a friend some issue you're having with your system, or you want to make a quick recording of some crazy thing you're about to do in a game. With the Chrome extension Loom, it's incredibly easy to capture and share a quick recording of your screen right from of your browser.
Chrome/Firefox: If you've used a web browser at any point in the past eight years, you've surely heard of the extension Turn Off the Lights (Chrome, Firefox). It's the best way to automatically embiggen your YouTube videos when you start watching and, of course, dim your browser's background for a prettier view (even if you're already using YouTube's dark mode).
