Didn’t dress up for Halloween last week? Well if you’re feeling like you missed out on the festivities, the Google Apps Marketplace has some awesome Extensions that you can try on your Google Chrome Browser. Take a look at my top 3 favorite picks for November. Every one of them is made to simplify your life – in perfect timing for kicking off this busy holiday season!
Have you ever been to a website and couldn’t see the content you were looking for due to all the distracting banner ads? AdBlock will take care of of that for you. As one of the most downloaded Chrome Extensions, AdBlock has been proven useful many times over. When setting up a chrome profile, this is always the first extension I download.
While AdBlock gets rid of ads across all websites indiscriminately by default, I recommend that you change the settings to allow ads on websites such as blogs and youtube channels that you spend time on in order to help support those content creators. For the rest of the web, AdBlock is the answer.
Save to Google Drive
With this extension, you can easily save a variety of content from across the web to your Google Drive with a simple right click menu. No more saving things to your computer first then uploading that content back to Google Drive. Now, you can easily right click on links, pictures, and other content and save it directly to your Drive.
Do you take a lot of screenshots? Just click on the ‘Save to Google Drive’ icon and quickly save a screenshot directly to Drive instead of dragging it in from your desktop.
Sidekick by Hubspot
Do you send important emails that you need to make sure people actually look at? With Sidekick, you can receive updates whenever a recipient opens your email, or clicks on any links. This extension plugs directly into Gmail and allows you to select (each time you send an email) whether or not it will be a Sidekick enabled email.
Coming soon, to the extension, is the ability to schedule emails to be sent at a later time. This is incredibly useful for doing follow-ups with clients or to remind people that you’re still waiting on action to be taken by them.Originally published on November 03, 2014
