Browser plugin or extensions are really helpful for us for work in our browser as these extensions help you save time by getting works done faster, increase your productivity by eliminating many hassles, keeping your personal information confidential, protecting your computer and its important data, etc. These tools are also very useful, but it also matters how familiar you are with them and how you use these tools. These extensions are also user-friendly, but a new user may face some difficulties in using these extensions for the first time. But this is temporary and will become familiar after a few uses.
Another thing that users should keep in mind is that using too many extensions or plugins in their browser can slow down the browser and also consume more power. Therefore, you should keep only the necessary extensions and remove the unnecessary ones from your browser.
