I use Google Chrome extensions for a variety of reasons, but some of them simply help me work more efficiently. Below, I list
4 Chrome Extensions to Increase Productivity
- Google Docs Quick Create helps you do exactly that: simply click on the extension and select the type of Google Drive Application you would like to create: Doc, Sheet, Presentation, Drawing, or Form. Simple as that!
- Send from Gmail: Although I predominantly use Inbox now for my emailing (because I find it, too, increases my productivity, and I like its built-in prioritization), “Send from Gmail” is a nice extension since it lets me share articles and websites easily with just 1 click. Click on the extension and the URL will already be included in an email to whomever you like!
- Context: As I’ve mentioned, I used many extensions and for diverse purposes, so I value that Context lets you easily sort your extensions into categories so you can access each, as needed.
- Tab Cloud: Although I try not to have multiple tabs open at a time, sometimes – particularly when I’m researching something – it is necessary if I get interrupted and don’t want to bookmark each site. I use Tab Cloud to save my open tabs, and then I can go back later to read each of the articles (that I have in open tabs), or visit those saved websites.
