Boost Your Business Efficiency: Top Browser Extensions for Microsoft Edge and Chrome

Browser extensions are the unsung heroes that can seriously boost your business efficiency. Let's dive into some of the top picks for Australian businesses looking to streamline their digital workflows when using Microsoft Edge.

What is a browser extension?

A browser extension is a small software module that adds specific features and functionalities to a web browser. These extensions can perform a variety of tasks, from managing passwords and blocking ads to enhancing browser security or improving productivity by integrating with other services.

Microsoft tends to call browser extensions Add-On's, just to throw something a little bit different into the mix! 
As a bonus, if you have your Microsoft Edge Browser logged into your account and set to sync, not only do you benefit from being able to access your favourites from another device that you log into, but your Add-On's follow you as well.

Here are some of the more popular browser extensions on Microsoft Edge:

  • Everhour - Keep track of every minute with this time management wizard. Perfect for project leaders needing to keep tabs on deadlines and budgets.
  • Workona - Say goodbye to tab-overload! Organize your browser sessions into neat, manageable workspaces.
  • LastPass - Forget remembering dozens of passwords; LastPass has your back with secure, autofill options for all your login needs.
  • Ghostery - Speed up and clean up your browsing by blocking those pesky trackers and ads.
  • AdBlock - Efficiently blocks ads across the web for a cleaner browsing experience.
  • Microsoft Editor - Assists in grammar and style suggestions across websites and emails.
  • NordVPN - Secures browsing data with a reliable virtual private network.
  • OneNote Web Clipper - Easily clips web pages directly to OneNote for organized note-taking.


Extensions are more than just tools; they are your gateway to a more productive and organised work life. Test them out, mix and match, and find the perfect combination that suits your professional flow! Some extensions are available on both browsers, so feel free to explore your preferred browsers' store for more. 

However, installing rogue browser extensions can pose significant security risks, including data theft, unauthorised access to business networks, and exposure to malware. It's crucial for users to practice cybersecurity safety by downloading extensions only from reputable sources, regularly reviewing permission settings, and staying informed about the latest security advisories related to the extensions they use.
