Chrome Extensions can be wonderful ways to extend the features and functions available in the web browser. Some extensions can cause conflicts and issues, however, so if you're having instability / freezing / crashing issues with things like Google Hangouts Meet / videoconferences, one good troubleshooting step is to DISABLE all your extensions. (Use Extensity!) You also need to beware / be careful to not install extensions which are malware / can steal your identity / etc. Rely on recommended sources (like our website!) and also check the number of downloads / users to decide what to install or avoid.

If you have suggestions for extensions to add to this list, please email them to helpdesk [at] casady [dot] org.
