Have you ever found that a quick recommendation for a similar site to the one that you are looking at would be handy? If so then you might want to check out the Google Similar Pages extension for Chrome.

Google Similar Pages in Action

We chose three different types of websites for our test. The first was for “fileforum”, a software download site.

Note: If a website is still new to the Internet you may receive a “No similar pages found.” message.

Clicking on the “Toolbar Button” opened a “Popup Window” that displayed four similar and very useful recommendations for software download websites.

Our second example was “photobucket”, a photo and video hosting website…

Once again we received a nice set of recommendations.


And just for fun we tried it with the “Google Search Page”…

In this particular instance two of the four recommendations were from the same “originating source”…


If you need quick and easy recommendations for webpages that are similar to the one that you are viewing then you will definitely want to give this extension a try. You just might find that next great website to add to your bookmarks collection.
