Chrome extensions

For those of you out there that use Facebook as well as other platforms like Twitter for news or just want to see only relevant information and need a way to hide anything that isn't useful, like the sponsored box? or friends are friends with other peoples, here's some helpful Chrome extensions that I use.

The first, Facebook Purity. http://goo.gl/Wej8V

Once installed you may want to configure it just a bit, but I use it to hide anything I don't want to see, give it a try, it's worth it.

Once configured to meet your needs, it add a little bar at the top of your Facebook news feed, to show/hide items that you have chosen to be hidden, it's very simple to use and filters all the useless crap.

Second, have you ever wanted to shorten a URL really really quickly? if so, use this extension. goo.gle Shortener Lite: http://goo.gl/NW3s3

It will add a little button to the top right of your Chrome window, and when you want to shorten a URL, just press it and there you have it, a short goo.gl URL.

There is also another blog post, listing a nice collection of extensions for Chrome, specifically for those who work in computer security, worth looking at and installing a few.
