Disable chrome extensions

If you are one of the people that use dozens of extensions in Chrome then there is a good chance you’re wasting memory that you don’t have to be. Chrome lets you disable extensions on-the-fly so that they don’t consume any resources until you enable them again. If you, for example, have some web development extensions installed you may only want them enabled when doing related work.

Disable All Extensions Plus is an extension that makes it easy toggle the state of any or all of your other extensions. The screenshot above shows how quick it is to access the menu of your extensions, and a simple click will toggle whether they are enabled or disabled. There is even the button at the top that will let you turn all of your extensions on or off at once.

There is one other feature that isn’t obvious, but is extremely useful. You can uninstall any of them by right-clicking on the extension in the list. Immediately after right-clicking on the item you’ll see a popup window asking you to confirm whether you want to uninstall the extension. I try out a lot of extensions and ditch most of them within a minute after they’re installed, and having this feature saves me several clicks each time.

This is a must-have for all of us extension hoarders.
