5 amazing browser extensions for breaking news addictive person
Keeping one eye on Twitter and constantly refreshing the homepage of your favorite news source is effective, but tiring. Thankfully, there are some helpful shortcuts.
1. Everything News
Chrome extension Everything News lists a constant scroll of headlines and links from The New York Times, CNN News, The Huffington Post, Reuters and CBS Top Stories. With one quick click, you can see the news that’s trending on all five sites.
NewsHub for Chrome pops out a little drop-down menu that you can quickly browse through to see strategic incoming headlines.
If you’re constantly looking for breaking news on a specific topic, the Gravity Highlighter is here to help. It learns what kind of news you read about, then will highlight articles on that topic on whichever site you visit.
Twitter is one of the best tools for rapid-fire breaking news. To ensure you’re not missing a thing, use the Firefox extension Notifier for Twitter. It creates a sidebar for the social site and has notifications that ping red when something noteworthy happens.
5. Feedly Mini
Feedly is a popular aggregate tool that gathers all the sites you love into one place. First, use Feedly — then, get Feedly Mini, an accompanying Chrome extension that brings everything you care about into a neat little sidebar.
Another Feedly extension is Feedly Notifier, which works with Chrome and Firefox. It pops up to notify you of everything in your feed.
