We would like to acquaint you with less popular, but no less useful applications.

In our opinion, no less interesting extensions for Google Chrome were undeservedly overshadowed.

HTTPS Everywhere

The site owner installed an SSL certificate on the site but did not configure automatic redirection to HTTPS. Or, the site contains encrypted pages with links to malicious sites that do not use an SSL certificate. Thus, your personal data (logins and passwords, bank card details, passport data) that the site sends and receives are transmitted in clear text and can be easily intercepted by intruders. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes this issue and forces sites to open over HTTPS if the site supports it.


As frightening as it may sound, browsers save all information about you: history of open sites, search history, logins and passwords, cache, and other information. If you are not the only one using the browser, sometimes the search history can play a cruel joke on you. For example, you have been looking for a surprise gift for a loved one for a birthday for a long time and carefully, and the birthday person found out about the gift in advance, just by seeing the browser history.

Click & Clean extension cleans browser history, deletes cookies and cache, clears download history, and protects your confidential information. The main feature of the extension is that it deletes information without having to restart the browser.
