Simplify the Web with these free Chrome extensions

On almost any webpage, numerous elements vie for your attention. Animated banners, comment threads, buttons, and options you never use all conspire to detract from whatever you're trying to pay attention to. It doesn't have to be that way: I've collected four free Google Chrome extensions that give the Web some breathing room. By stripping away extraneous content or highlighting what's important, they make browsing a more peaceful, focused experience.
