So sit back, unpack, and dive into the plucky world of Brave extensions!

1. Loom

Ah, screen recording. The bane of every developer's existence. Well, not anymore: Loom has got your back. This nifty little extension allows you to record and share your screen easily. Need to show your co-worker how to reproduce a bug? Loom it. Want to demonstrate your latest code changes to your manager? Loom it. The possibilities are endless with Loom.

As a developer, you constantly juggle multiple projects and tasks. It can be challenging to track how much time you spend on each one. That's where Toggl Track comes in. This extension is a great way to track your time and improve your productivity. With Toggl Track, you can quickly start and stop a timer for each task you're working on.

3. The Great Suspender

Do you ever find yourself with a million tabs open in your browser and your computer starts to slow down? As a developer, you're probably used to having multiple tabs open for work, research, and entertainment. But, having too many tabs open can cause your computer to run slower, and it can be a natural productivity killer. 

This is where The Great Suspender shines. This Brave extension helps you save memory by automatically suspending tabs you're not actively using, freeing up resources and making your browser run faster. You can easily configure the extension to suspend tabs after a certain period of inactivity or manually stop tabs yourself. 

The Great Suspender also has allowlist and blocklist features, so you can exclude certain websites or keep specific tabs open all the time. This extension is a must-have for anyone who wants to keep their browser running smoothly and avoid the dreaded “Oh no, my browser crashed!” message.

4. Grammarly

If you're like most developers, writing isn't your strong suit. Thankfully, Grammarly is here to help. This extension checks your grammar, spelling, and punctuation as you type. It's like having a personal editor right in your browser!

As a developer, you might think grammar doesn't matter much. But let me tell you, nothing ruins the credibility of a GitHub README like a bunch of typos and grammatical errors. That's where Grammarly comes in. This Brave extension checks your spelling and grammar as you type, so you can be sure that your code comments and documentation are on point.

5. Zoom Scheduler

Working from home means endless video calls. If you're like me, you've probably missed a call or two because of the lack of an automatic reminder. Enter Zoom Scheduler, a nifty tool with which you can schedule your Zoom meetings directly from your browser, automatically adding them to your calendar with a reminder. You can also create recurring meetings and add custom links. This is perfect for developers constantly scheduling meetings with team members or clients. It saves time and ensures you don't forget about an appointment. Plus, it's just one less thing to worry about. So add this extension to your Brave browser, and enjoy never missing a Zoom call again.

6. OneTab

As a developer, you probably have more tabs open than you can count. Each one is filled with valuable information and resources, but having too many tabs open can slow down your browser and make it harder to find what you need. 

That's where OneTab comes in. 

This extension is a lifesaver when it comes to managing your tabs. It lets you quickly and easily consolidate all your open tabs into one tab. You can then restore individual tabs or all with just one click. This saves memory and makes it easier to switch between different tabs without slowing down your computer. And, it's not just great for work — use it to organise all those cat videos you have opened, too. So, if you're tired of having a cluttered browser and want a simpler way to manage your tabs, give OneTab a try. Your computer (and your cat video addiction) will thank you!

7. AIPRM for ChatGPT

The AIPRM for ChatGPT extension goes beyond offering AI-generated responses to user queries. It also provides access to various curated prompt templates for SEO, marketing, and copywriting purposes.
