Sometimes the best isnât good enough. Instead of giving you a treasure trove of useful information that could help you increase your productivity, make millions of dollars, and find true-love, weâre taking a different tact: letâs bring out the worst in Googleâs Chrome internet browser.
Seriously, donât try this at home, this is a list of some of the worst Chrome extensions we could find, some are actual threats to your computer security and others are just, well, take a look:
You will go insane if you turn every image on the internet into Nick Cage, using this classic extension. I refuse to install and test this extension, because itâs unholy and I just wonât have it. Cage was amazing in Face Off though, and perhaps thatâs the take-away here.Â
AVG Web TuneUp
All of the AVG Chrome extensionsÂ The company probably does all the things it says it does with its Chrome extensions, which are supposed to protect you from viruses, adware, and other browser security threats. I wouldnât know; part of itâs user agreement involves allowing them to collect and sell data related to your browsing activity. I wonât be installing it.Â
Please, whatever you do, donât install Cenafy. Whatever reason you have for liking John Cena â and we all like John Cena, donât kid yourself â will evaporate the first time his visage leaps unto your screen leaving you powerless to complete any task until the speaker-shaking audio shouting his name ceases. Itâs all fun and games until your Google Hangouts meeting gets interrupted by a screaming wrestler meme.Â
This Chrome extension changes all of your Facebook reactions options into various images of Donald Trump. Reviewers say it doesnât work, but I was too scared to even try it â for fear Iâd have to destroy my laptop if it didnât uninstall properly.Â
Even though Particle Â is no longer available on the Chrome Store we should talk about it. Â It once was legit, and then became adware. This TNW report explains how that happens, even when designers have the best of intentions. Interestingly it seems like you can still get the pre-adware version by visiting this page. If you have Particle installed and you allowed it to update, you should probably uninstall it right now.
Donât blame us if you try to use one of these and you end up with a computer possessed by ads or the guy who played Ghostrider.
