    Just thought I would share a couple of the chrome plugins that slightly speed up things you might do on a regular basis. Time is money, and saving a few seconds does add up over time. Sure you can go fully automated on some of these tasks, but a personal touch to things helps sometimes.

    Imgur Extension:

    A lot of the time I find I need to share images, or screen shots with someone to better explain something that i'm just not getting across verbally, this plugin lets you automatically send a screen shot of your desktop, displaying only in your browser, or cropped area you outline to imgur simply by right-clicking on the image or area. This saves tons of time manually sending files to people/staff whatever the case may be, also avoids looking retarded when you post something on a forum and it doesn't work because you weren't thinking about hotlink protection lol.

    Pinner:

    Same concept with this, right-click and send straight to pinterest, write that personal description that makes what you're pinning less generic.

    Post to Tumblr:

    You guessed it, right-click and post to tumblr, take the time to put in those relevant tags yourself.

    Reddit Hover Craft:

    If you're ever browsing reddit for images this plugin speeds up the process a lot by not having to manually click each link to see the images on the post page, just hover over each title and it will automatically show you the image.

    Hopefully at least one of these plugins makes your life a little easier.

    IMHO, I suggest you to stay away from google tools as an IMer. Ff has thousands of goodies doing everything you would like.

    For services like showing another person your screen, I prefer to use join.me rather than imgur. But still a very useful post!

    My list (bolds are must have)
    LastPass - Keep track of all those passwords!
    Adblock - Not a fan of ads
    Page Rank Status - Gives me a quick look at PR and other data
    Hover Zoom - Look at thumbnails/reddit/twitter pictures faster. (This plugin saves me the most time, maybe tied with lastpass)
    MozBar - PA and DA on google searches
    StumbleUpon - I dont really use this much anymore.
