Other Things We ❤: Plug-ins

Illustration of stick figure with a giant electrical plug saying "Here you go, my sweet, sweet browser!" to an upset computer saying "It doesn't work this way!" Today we’re going to tell you about something we really ❤: Plug-ins (also known as add-ons or extensions). To be clear, we’re not talking about air fresheners, but rather tiny tools that enhance your web browser. Plug-ins can help you create better websites for your users — and you know we really, really ❤ that.

So if you haven’t yet explored the wonderful world of plug-ins (or even if you have), we’re here with some basics. We’ve listed some all-too-familiar scenarios below and linked them to a plug-in that can solve that problem. Handy, eh?

Common frustrations

Isn’t this fun? And these are just a few plug-ins for a few browsers. Spend some time checking out the plug-in store of your favorite browser (like ChromeFirefox, or Safari) and start making your life easier today.

P.S. If you want to know more about accessibility, check out our post about making health information accessible.

The bottom line: Use browser plug-ins to create better, more usable websites.
