Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life
We love using Instagram to share and view photos and videos, but sometimes it’d be easier to see everyone’s pets, brunch and travel pics on a larger screen – which is why we heart the Instagram extension for Chrome. This extension makes it super easy to like, comment and explore Instagram like you can on your Chrome and lets you see the photos in a larger size. Also, no more accidental double taps! What’s not to like?
