So, let’s take a look at these extensions that can help you work smarter.
Are your roommates tired of listening to you revise your notes out loud during all-nighters while they’re desperately trying to sleep? Or do you find yourself falling asleep after a few hours of studying without any background noise to support you? Well, some of us are auditory learners, and Speechify is an extension that can help with that. Now you can supplement those pages and pages of notes with a read-aloud version to help you focus and retain more material without straining your voice or disturbing your roommates. All you need to do is download the extension, set up a free account and you’re good to go. Feel free to customise the voice’s tone, speed, and accent for the best results.
Save to Pocket
Remember that one site you found three days ago that made the perfect point you need for your essay? You don’t need to spend hours scrolling through your search history to find it. An extension like Save to Pocket allows you to bookmark different websites according to the content or categories you need. The extension also recommends similar pages and articles based on the bookmarks you’ve made so you might find your research a lot more streamlined and easier to follow without having to put in any additional effort.
Cite This For Me: Web Citer
Even if you’re the best student in the entire world, there’s no way you remember every single formatting rule that your research paper requires. And that’s where the Cite This For Me extension can become a game changer. Whether it’s MLA, APA, Chicago, or Harvard format that you’re looking for, this extension will give you a ready-made citation to add to your bibliography. Simply click the extension when you’re on a webpage you want to cite, and you’ll get a plethora of citation styles to choose from. Then all you need to do is copy and paste.
This is an extension you might be familiar with from the mobile version, but it’s one that works on Chrome too. If you’re someone who frequently gets distracted from their studies due to YouTube videos, Buzzfeed quizzes or Netflix, you might want to try the Forest App that’ll help you be more productive. This extension relies on the Pomodoro technique and blocks certain websites (from a list which you can customise) for thirty minute intervals. At the end of thirty minutes of solid revision, it rewards you with a tree. The more work you get done, the bigger your forest grows. Try this extension out and see its effectiveness on your productivity for yourself.

If you opt for a premium account, you can even get detailed feedback and suggestions that will make doing homework and college application essays a lot easier to deal with.
Studying, whether it’s in school or college, is a necessary evil, especially during exam time. These extensions can make your revision a little less painful and help you get more work done quickly. So go ahead and try them out. You’ve got this.
