Google Dictionary (by Google)

Paul reads a lot, and he admits that he’s thoroughly spoiled by the Kindle App on his iPhone, which returns the definition of words when he highlights them.  It's pretty simple to double-click, press CTRL-C, CTRL-P, place the cursor into a Google search bar, hit the ENTER key, and then another click of the mouse from there to read the generated definition.  This takes just three to five seconds on average.  But given the choice to get the definition of a word by, well, simply double-clicking on the word, why not just install this nifty extension?

While the amount of time you interact with the Web browser might differ depending on individual job responsibilities, Paul Mah thinks it would be fair to say that many of us spend hours a day on the Web in the course of our work or personal interests.  As you can imagine, the presence (or absence) of quality plug-ins or browser extensions can enhance or impede our productivity.

Paul made the switch from Mozilla Firefox to Google Chrome earlier this year due to performance degradation that he found taxing to his productivity.  With extensions now supported in the stable release of Chrome, he thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the most useful extensions. These are his favorite Google Chrome extensions.
