It will auto-scroll an entire webpage, giving you a screenshot, that’s viewable, in a single image on the page, you’d like to capture with just one click of the full-page screen capture icon. It will take a full-page screenshot when it’s done; you can save it as a pdf, which is what I prefer, or saves it as a png file.
Grammarly is perhaps one of the most well-known Chrome Extensions. It’s more advanced than most spell-check systems.

Ublock origin is the absolute best blocker you can get. It’s open-source, low on system resources, and just does a great job of blocking ads, trackers, and malware sites. Also, your block origin does not support the Adblock plus, which allows certain ads to slip through without being blocked.
