  • Rescroller

  • This extension lets you customize the scrollbar of google chrome. This extension can be good for both visual and practical reasons that I can talk about. It works simply, you just go into the extension and choose different option about how it looks. Like width, the color, the fill of the scrollbar, whether or not it should have rounded corners and even what color it should show when you hover it over. Besides that, this extension can help those who have really high-resolution monitor. For example, you may have a 4K monitor but the scrollbar seems smaller compared to the rest of the screen. With this extension, you can adjust the scrollbar size so it’s bigger and easier to click on with bigger screens.

  • This extension is also a cool one as it simply tells you what different fonts are being used on any websites. Along with that, it will give you the link where you can actually download that font to use it for yourself. Also, whether the font is free or you need to pay for it. All you need to do is click on the icon of the extension to activate it and the first thing you will notice is an entire list of fonts being used on the website. The coolest part of this extension is, it shows the font details of every text whenever you hover over them. Along with that, it will give you information about current font size to the vertical and horizontal spacing and even the font color. Another cool thing about this extension is that when you click a font in the list. It will open a text box so that you can try out the font and resize it to see how it looks when you type stuff in it along with the link of the site where you can download or buy the font.
