The main functions of Chrome browsers typically include web browsing, bookmarking, password storage, cookies, etc.

Headlinr helps you through this, all you have to give it is a keyword. It will generate thousands of catchy headlines based on that keyword and let you choose the one you like.

This one too comes in handy during content research.
Content research can be an intense process as you have to go through the web to find all the information you can about the topic. And that always makes us open infinite tabs on our chrome browser and get lost in them 🙁
OneTab solves the issue by simply combining all the tabs into one and forming a list of them. So you can focus on the important ones first while not losing the other pages too. And when you want to see those pages just click on them and you got what you wanted.
