Mozbar is an exclusive product by Moz team, and it works with or without a Moz account. This toolbar quickly reveals important data about page that you are browsing, including domain authority, meta details, domain authority, Moz rank and so on.
Moz bar is used in two main ways.

It will display all the links on the page. Working links are highlighted in green color and broken links are in red color with an error code beside the URL.
The one thing that could be helpful is having a shortcut to quickly copy the URLs and anchor text of the broken links, which could then be pasted into an email or spreadsheet. Still, this is the best broken link checker I’ve used.

When you have a web page open and click the icon, a new tab will open almost immediately with a complete list of links.
There’s no option to see only external links. If you’d like to only see those, right-click the icon and click on options. Then, you can add the domain you’re on to the blocked domains list so that it won’t show up.
This extension tracks all scripts on a page and shows them to you in an attractive little pop-out panel. This tells you which widgets, plugins, and scripts are used on the page. If you are running a lot of scripts we can block unwanted scripts on your website.

Redirects are an important part of the Internet. As pages and sites get updated or transfer ownership, redirects can ensure that backlink authority is passed through and that visitors can still find you.
This extension will show you all the redirects from the URL you entered to your final URL:
You can then use the plugin to follow the redirect chain and then find all the backlinks pointing to each URL along with the way. You can use this to find any redirect problems you’re having with your own site.

A buffer is an amazing tool for scheduling social media sharing. You can set it to share a certain number of posts per day at specific times automatically.
This extension allows you to add posts to share to your personal queue. Instead of having to go back to the main Buffer site, you can just click this extension icon when you come across something worth sharing and add it to your queue.
Snagit is a very simple tool used to create images for blogs. It is often a bit quicker just because you can download an image directly after editing it instead of going to your notebook and downloading it. It has a few different options when it comes to shape and color, but it doesn’t have the advanced tools such as the marker, blurring, or highlighting.
Bit.ly is arguably the most popular link shortener service. It lets you shorten URLs quickly, and it even lets you track stats such as the number of clicks a link got. Another cool feature is that if you enter an URL to shorten it if someone has already done it with Bit.ly, you can see how many people clicked it in the past.

20.Firebug for Mozilla Firefox:
This extension is a must for any SEO or developer using Firefox. It allows you to right-click on an element of a page to see its HTML and CSS.
Additionally, you can edit the HTML/CSS to see what the page would look like with different parameters. Developers can use Firebug to debug websites, but SEOs typically don’t need to worry about that.
Now before you go loading all of the plugins above, be aware that the more plugins you have active, the slower your browsing experience might become.
So use those plugin which is needed for optimization only, using many extensions make browser clumsy and makes it very slow in loading.
