Be More Efficient with Google Chrome Extensions

11 September

Whether it’s a new found short-cut on your route to work, a coupon in the Sunday paper, or an app to organize your never-ending to-do list, we are all looking for ways to be more efficient in our day-to-day lives. When it comes to the internet, productivity can easily go south without utilizing the right tools. Sometimes you just wish you could do one simple task by the click of your mouse, without having to copy and paste multiple times. Well, Google Chrome understands and has developed a few simple extensions to simplify and speed up your online experience.

Google Chrome is now the world’s most popular web browser, and with good reason. Chrome is faster, more secure, and offers more flexibility in it’s address bar than other leading web browsers. One of today’s top trending articles, “7 Chrome Extensions to Make You More Efficient,” is one you really want to take note of. In this article, Mashable lists seven Chrome extensions that can “help boost productivity at work, make emailing more efficient, and even help multi-taskers manage an ever-growing number of tabs.”

Three of my favorites include:

 

#4 Chrome to Mobile

Chrome to Mobile allows you to send webpages on your computer to your Chrome browser on other devices like tablets or smartphones. It’s an easy way to take information from your desktop or laptop and instantly transfer it to a mobile device.”

#5 Explain and Send Screenshots

 

“For those who are constantly iterating and sharing mockups via email, Explain and Send Screenshots allows a user to take a screenshot and mark it up with text, color, and other edits. You can save the image as a file, or upload the image to get a link to share via email or social media sites.”

#7 Email This Page

“When you add the Email This Page extension to Chrome, a small envelope icon appears on your toolbar that allows you to quickly email any page. Clicking on the extension icon opens up a compose page in Gmail (or whatever your default mail service is), includes an automated subject line with the name of the site you’re sending from, and a direct link to the page you want to send.”
