So much time is spent online and that time should be spent as efficiently as possible. This is where web extensions and programs come in, we often forget they exist, but they do and a lot of them are there to help you maxamize productivity. So here are some Chrome hacks, curtsey of Business Insider, to help you work better and quicker.
1. Chrome Remote Desktop lets you easily access your other computer.
Left a file at work? Or need to check something on your home computer? Connect via Remote Desk and grab it.
2. MightyText lets you text your friends without constantly reaching for your phone.
For users of iMessage on Apple, this is no news, as the concept of MightyText is the same, but this might alleviate problems for Android users.
3. Work on the go with Chrome to Mobile
Pressed for time? Work on your project on the way to work or on the way home. The extension lets you take live web pages and work on the go by replicating your desktop browsers experience on your smartphone. It works offline too.
4. Avoid silly grammar errors with Grammarly.
Sending emails way too early in the morning is prime grammar and spelling error time, so thankfully Grammarly is there for you to look out for your silly mishaps. It works on Gmail and social media.
5. Serial tab opener? Keep track with OneTab.
If you feel overwhelmed with too many open tabs OneTab will take them and turn them into a list, organised by date. This also frees up your computer’s memory for other things.
6. Google Similar Pages helps you find what you want fast.
Google Similar Pages is a quick way to get the right website. The extension puts a little dropdown that lets you discover similar pages without having to go back to Google and search.
7. Stay on top of your emails with Google Mail Checker
This is a must have for anyone who sends and receives email on a daily basis. It just takes a quick glance to stay updated without having to continually open Gmail.
8. Keep a reading log with Pocket.
With so many websites and platforms to read from and so little time to read it all, Pocket might just be the perfect app. It saves the article to your Pocket queue so you can read it later on.
