The basic features and options in a browser will not meet all the requirements of a user. That’s why we have plenty of plugins available for all the leading browsers on the Internet. Plugins helps the browsers to enhance its functionality by bringing more features from the third party apps. These extensions will help improve the privacy of your browser, stay focused on your work and much more. Chrome and Firefox are the commonly used browsers. They both have plenty of extensions in their respective web stores.
Previously, I wrote a simple extensions manager for Chrome, to manage all the installed extensions from a single place. Today I’ve come with a new application called “Wise Plugin Manager”, which lets you manage all your browser plugins from a single place on your Windows machine. Here’s how it works.
Wise Plugin Manager is a free application for Windows. You can download the app using the link at the end of this post. It supports Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer. Once you complete the installation, the app will take you to the home page where you have the list of all the supported browsers on the left panel. Using this application, you can set or change any browser on that list as your default browser. Only the installed browsers will be highlighted, other will be disabled.
When you select a browser on the left panel, all the installed plugins will be displayed on the right. You can quickly enable/disable the extensions from the application window. Also, it lets you remove the unwanted extensions from your browser easily. It will free up a lot of space on your browser and increase the speed. When you disable or delete the extension, that particular browser should be closed, otherwise it won’t work. The app has an option to give ratings for the installed extensions on your browser. Based on the performance, you can give ratings for the extensions to help the other users.
The Wise Plugin Manager is now in the beta stage. Only basic management options were available right now. Adding more useful functions and features will make this app more efficient to manage browser extensions on your PC. If you use multiple browsers with plenty of extensions, this is a must have application in your Windows machine. Share your views about the app in the comments.
