Organizing Extensions

Context Extension

This extension can be used to organize your extensions into categories. Once you start adding more and more extensions to your Chrome browser, you might not be able to remember what they are used for if you don't use them often. Using Context to organize them helps you keep them in categories that make them easier to find and use.
