This Chrome extension plays background noise like falling rain or a bonfire to help cancel out the background noise. In addition to the relaxing sounds, Noisli also comes with a timer to help you break down your work into sessions. Finally, one of the best features of all is that Noisli has a built-in text editor to help you gain productivity you while you write.

This is the Chrome extension for anyone who wants to be as efficient as possible. Strict Workflow lets you set a 25-minute timer that will block all popular, distracting websites so you can focus and get your work done. After your work period, you will get a 5-minute break where all of the popular websites will be available again. This timer system is great for holding yourself accountable while still giving yourself a reward for hard work.

This extension is a must-have for Gmail users. With it, you’ll be able to effortlessly stay on top of multiple Gmail accounts without even opening Gmail in Chrome. You’ll receive real-time notifications, and you’ll be able to read, listen to, or delete emails immediately. Other cool features include receiving notifications even when Chrome is closed, monitoring emails with custom labels in your Gmail account, and offline viewing.

4. Pocket
