If not the most, Instagram is definitely one of the most popular photo sharing networks out there. Widely used by fans for whatever reason, the network does have a few limitations. One of these is faced by people who simply want to browse beautiful and interesting pictures uploaded by people from every corner of the Earth or check their own feeds..but on a desktop instead of their smartphone. Since Instagram is essentially a smartphone-only app, the experience is ruined on a desktop.
To this end, you can find extensions on Chrome like InstaBrowser and Instagram Print by the dozen. However, if you wish to simply view the most popular images, comments and likes on them etc straight from your browser Instagram for Chrome is probably the best extension out there. It allows you to view Instagram photos and likes/comments on them straight from the Chrome toolbar and also lets you like/comment yourself.
The extension is really light and fast and the interface is much like that of Instagram itself. Regular users will like how the extension matches the original Instagram look.
The extension can be found from the Chrome Web Store or you can follow the link given at the bottom of this page to install it. Once you have installed it, you will need to authorize your Instagram account information. Authorization is really easy and straightforward. Afterwards, simply click on any name or hashtag to browse through.
One drawback of this extension is that it needs to be uninstalled and removed and then installed again if you wish to sign in with a different Instagram account. That’s an issue if you have more than one Instagram account in use.
Apart from that one aspect though, the extension is overall good looking and user friendly. To start viewing, liking and commenting Instagram photos from within Chrome right away, follow the download link given below.
