Enable Chrome extensions automatically for preset sites

Extension bloat can cause performance problems with Chrome, but Extension Automation helps by automatically turning extensions on for particular sites.

If you've dived deeply into Chrome extensions, you know how powerful they can be, and also how much they can eat up memory. Extension Automation reins them in by enabling them only for particular sites. Here's how to use it: 

  1. Install Extension Automation here. 
  2. On any page, click the gear-shaped Extension Automation icon to enable particular extensions for that site. Note that the first time you do this for any extension, you automatically disable it for other sites, so you may want to take care of your favorite sites all at once. 
    Step 2: Choose extensions to enable.

  3. You can also click Settings in the icon pop-up to add or delete filters; this can be a simpler way to reactivate an extension that you find universally handy. 

That's it! Extension Automation is simple, but powerful, and should keep power Chrome users happy.
