5 Browser Extensions For The Savvy Social Selling Pro

Browser extensions are plug-ins that extend the functionality of a web browser in some way. One of the main advantages of browser extensions is that they allow us to use certain applications without having to log in and leave the place where we are already working. Using extensions can save us a lot of time and make us more productive.
