Here’s a list of 5 White noise extensions for Google Chrome. A lot of people have problems focusing on their work when working on the computer, since there are a lot of distractions available. Procrastination is a real issue. For some people playing a relaxing sound while working helps them focus. If you’re like that, and the relaxing sound that you enjoy listening is White noise, then you’re in luck. Chrome extensions that I tested down below play White noise so that you can focus and not be distracted when doing work using Chrome. Let’s see how exactly it is that they work.

It features a configurable HTML 5 player, where you can create a sound mix of your own. Mix of white, pink or brown noise is possible to setup, and then you can additionally tweak oscillation rate for each of the selected sounds. On top of that you can setup the overall audio quality. Once you hit the “Start” button, sound mix starts playing right away. Playback can run on an infinite loop or a timer can be setup to turn off the sound in X number of minutes.
Noisli is a web service very similar to White Noise by kwebpia and this is its extension for Chrome.
In a way it adds on top of what the recently mentioned white noise extensions are offering, because it has a nice modern looking interface and the process of creating personalized sounds has also been simplified.
