Instantly enable and disable Chrome extensions

Chrome extensions can be incredibly useful, but they also grab resources and clutter your toolbar, maybe annoying if you only use them occasionally.

Install Extensity and the first benefit is you can disable every extension with a couple of clicks. The toolbar icons disappeared and our baseline Chrome RAM use dropped by around 10%.

That's a little drastic, but Extensity displays a menu of your installed extensions and you can select any of these to toggle it on or off.

Still too much work? You're able to create profiles which represent the groups of extensions you'd like enabled in different situations. Create a profile called "Essentials" with items you always need - ad blocker, password manager and so on - and it appears on the Extensity list. Select it at any time and everything but the extensions you've specified will be disabled.

Verdict:

A must-have add-on for enthusiastic Chrome extension collectors, or anyone who's looking for an easy way to minimise Chrome RAM usage and declutter their toolbar.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
