Vitals offers an easy way to monitor your computer’s temperature, voltage, fan speed, memory usage, CPU load, storage and more. It is an aptly named extension giving you all your essential system information.
The configuration options are particularly useful including the polling intervals, the option to select which sensors to show, and more.
Monitoring storage didn’t seem to work on our system. We’re not sure if this is an issue with the version of GNOME we’re running. Share in the comments section if this functionality works for you.
10. Screenshot Tool
Here’s another useful extension. It offers a convenient shortcut to create screenshots. We particularly like its implementation, combined with silky smooth operation.
You can grab an area of the screen, a window, or the whole desktop.
There’s support for uploading images to Imgur, an online image sharing community and image host. Images are uploaded without being linked to an account. You can even delete an image if it’s the most recent upload.
There are configurable keybindings for the 3 different types of capture.
11. Net speed Simplified
Net speed Simplified is the neatest network traffic monitor. We particularly like its clean user interface. There is plenty of customization to tailor the extension to your liking.
12. Clipboard Indicator
This extension is a helpful productivity extension.
Clipboard Indicator adds a clipboard indicator to the top panel, and caches clipboard history.
It’s very simple and easy to use, but would benefit from a few more options.
- Configurable history size.
- Configurable preview size.
- Change the refresh interval.
- Define the maximum cache file size.
- Option to cache only favorites.
- Private mode.
- Keyboard shortcuts – toggle the menu, clear history, go to previous entry, and go to next entry.
