There is a large selection of extensions that can help you organize your budget and finances. They can help you view your spending habits and help you visualize what changes need to be made in order to keep you on track for your financial future.

Andrea’s note: I had no idea there were so many cool budgeting extensions available for Chrome! I love Chrome (and I’m super excited that it’s available for iPhone and iPad now) so I’ll definitely be trying out a few of these! Do any of you use these extensions already? I’d love to know how you like them!

    This is brilliant, I had no idea there were budget tools either, I thought it was just useful for Angry Birds! I'm going to go and take a look. Chrome is so far ahead of IE, and even Firefox too which used to be highly regarded, but there seems to be a lot of progression in browsers at the moment, being driven mostly by Chrome from what I can see.

  2. I haven't heard of a few of these, that's quite interesting. It seems like the rate of change is increasing all the time. As for Chrome, I have started using it periodically, and might go that route as the default.

  3. I am a yodlee guy and want to stick with them forever. nice to know so many names. But, not switching.
