Chrome Extensions

Reddit Companion

There are many subreddits where sharing of links is completely banned.

I know that’s not the right thing to do but there are many users who add links only for spamming purposes.

So, to avoid that, many subreddit admins do not allow you to add links.

Then what if when asking for an opinion, you have to share a relevant web page?

Well, for that you can use the Reddit Companion Chrome extension that lets you share a webpage on subreddits.

Sharing a link with the Reddit Companion chrome extension is quite simple.

To use this extension, all you need to do is open the Reddit extension.

✅Add the title of your Reddit post.

✅Then submit the links you want to share.

✅Mention the Subreddit where you want to share a particular link.

✅And at last, the Chrome extension also lets you upload or download already shared web pages on Reddit.

Readr for Reddit

As I said above, there are many useful subreddits available that you can connect with.

One such subreddit is /askreddit where you can ask experts different questions in return to get more answers from multiple users.

That is all great, but you can’t avoid answers in the form of long comments.

So to get the right advice, it becomes very important for you to read every comment posted on the thread created by you.

As most of the time answer comes in the form of long comments, it’s nearly impossible for you to read all this content in one go.

So for that, you can use Readr for Reddit extension.

It provides a clean and pleasing user interface that makes reading long comments is nothing but a fascinating task as it lets you read comments in night mode.

That’s great, isn’t it?


After Google and Facebook, YouTube is one of the popular video streaming platforms that lets you watch the videos of your favorite YouTuber or youtube channels.

But the thing is, Every video on YouTube has a built-in comment section.

However, most of these comments are filled with nothing but pure spam.

I know YouTubers can disable these comments.

But what if you want to get genuine feedback right from the fans?

Well, for that you can use the Alientube Chrome extension to allow Reddit comments to be seen right aside from YouTube comments.

Don’t you believe me, right?

Well, take a look at this SCREENSHOT:

Shine for Reddit

Even though Reddit lets you use their new user interface by default and It never stops you from going back to the older interface.

But what if you are not satisfied with either of them?

Is there any alternative?

Well, there is in the form of Shine for Reddit Chrome extension.

Shine for Reddit provides a unique user interface that lets you access the social media website into two different views.

The all-new view and The grid View.

The former one lets you Open Reddit videos, gifs, pictures, and comments without opening a single new tab.

In the latter one, the Reddit content is brought to you in a more organized and visually appealing manner.

Thereby making it look like eye candy for users.

See It Chrome extension

As I said above, there are many users who share unnecessary links to spam threads on Reddit,

With all the links floating all over Reddit. It’s important that you stay away from opening these unsafe links.

So for that, you can use, Chrome extension for Reddit.

With this extension, you can get a quick look at the link without actually opening the link.

When using the See It extension, every time you hover your mouse over a link, this extension shows a preview.

Once that happens, if it shows any spammy website or 18+ adult content site, then you can either report that link to the subreddit admins.

Or simply ignore that link to move over to the next one.

Now that you know what it does. You can use it to stay on the safer side when using Reddit on your PC or mobile.

NOTE: Before you go ahead, there is one thing for you to note. If a particular Reddit page has too many links, then you may experience a bit of slowdown. So keep that in mind when visiting a selected page with too many links.
