5 of the most useless browser extensions you HAVE to download right now

Whether you use Chrome or Firefox (as a human with feelings you better not be using Internet Explorer) there are some amazing browser extensions out there. Useful ones like Grammarly (spell check on juice) or The Great Suspender (tab management) but then you get extensions that are in a league of their own. Here are some of the most useless Chrome and Firefox extensions that are actually pretty cool (even if you just use them once).

Get Clippy the annoying paperclip on EVERY single website you visit

As much as you deny it, if you were using Microsoft Office circa 1998, you probably miss Clippy. Installing the extension allows Clippy to enter your online life. I had Clippy on a couple of websites and then got annoyed so removed it. Nostalgia can be funny like that. If you’re looking for an update, try out Pipey from Silicon Valley.
