Best Google Chrome Extensions of 2017
Best Google Chrome Extensions for Accessibility :
1- Dark Reader
If you have any problem with your eyes while you are using and browsing the websites, use this useful extension which can invert color of your chrome using special smart way to transform bright blinding stuff into eye relaxing.
Add-On User Review: by Abhay Bhatt
Believe me, this is the best! I have used other dark theme extensions like ‘High Contrast’, but with all, there was the same problem:- that they inverted images and videos as well. Well..this doesn’t! So far, I’ve tested Imdb, Wikipedia, Twitter and Youtube – the sites I visit most often. And with those websites, this extension works great, it doesn’t invert images or videos, and so there is no need to install separate extension for that.
Also, I have observed that when using ‘High Contrast’ – another extension for this purpose, the screen annoyingly turns white for a short while any webpage loads, and turns dark when loaded. This problem also doesn’t happen with this extension.
2- Speed Dial [FVD]
Create your own Dials with 3D view and arrange photos, sync, bookmark organization, groups, and most-visited.
Add-On User Review: by Abhay Bhatt
love this little extension not fond of the having to use the back up extension but i’ve made my piece with that and am happy with it as it is the speed dials work like a charm and when i had a issue i actually got help with it from an actual person they helped me fix the issue and my dial work fine again i hope they keep amking this better and keep this alive keeps things nice and neat

Add-On User Review: by Kelly Zhou
This is an amazing extension! This definitely helps when I’m reading websites with hard-to-read/annoying fonts.
6- Tab Resize – split screen layouts
Add-On User Review: by Tom Davidson
Awesome, thoughtful design that doesn’t add any complex new UI (like with multiple web views under 1 tab.) Took me a minute to understand that it populates the new windows with the tabs to the *right* of the current one. The demo should perhaps explain how you can reorder your tabs before resizing to get a particular effect.
Justify lets you quickly and easily justify all content on any webpage, all you need just click Justify icon or use keyboard shortcuts.
Add-On User Review: by Kevin Mulligan
It works well when I click the icon. But the Ctrl + Shift + J brings up the console in Chrome. Which might be something I enabled as a developer but it would be nice to be able to change the shortcut.
