Chrome Extensions to improve browsing experience

I was looking out for how Google Chrome can be used efficiently and during my search, came across interesting extensions to improve experience of browsing on Google Chrome. These extensions can be found on Chrome Extensions Web Store. Some of the extensions are:

  • High Contrast: Change or revert colour schemes to make the page easy to read
  • Long Description: Right click on any element that may have “longdesc” or “aria-describedat” to access the long description.
  • Caret browsing: Enable user to access the text of web page using arrow keys
  • Colour Enhancer: Applies customised colours to web page for enhance visibility
  • Notebook web clipper: This will remove all clutter and have content saved to notepad.

Kudos to Google Accessibility Team and Zohoo (for last one) for making these available.
