He we go. I though of compiling a list of the best / top Google Chrome Extension that save me hours upon hours of work. I don’t know if you are like me but every time I encounter the famous 20 second limit before doing anything, I seriously reconsider the idea of starting which push me to procrastinate often. The solution? I just need to make sure that when I need to do something, I can start in less than 20 seconds. Here comes the life savers extensions from Google Chrome. The list:
The perfect extension to share interesting web pages on all you social profiles. Facebook page, Twitter and LinkedIn. Being a business operator, I actually have to manage more than 12 social accounts which make the extension Bufferapp a must. It also allow me to just publish my articles and the app will make sure to release them when the best time come. Example: Its midnight and I decide to publish a few articles. I just need to put them in Bufferapp and they’ll take care of sending them to Twitter and Facebook at the most appropriate times. 9pm, 2pm, etc.
This is one of my favourite tool. I no longer need to login to gmail.com and check if I received new emails. While surfing, Checker Plus will simply notify me of new emails and ask me if I want to “Read”, “Archive” or “Delete” them. I realized after a month of intense use that it really reduce the time I pass in my inbox because it force me to take immediate action which is perfect for me. If you are the kind of person that check you email only 2 times a day, like Tim Ferriss, you can simply configure the app to check every few hours. By default mine is set to 15 minutes.
Forget about logging in to Facebook, just use Facebook Notifications to get the infos you need. While listening to a Youtube video, I can actually read my Facebook notifications at the same time. You also have the ability to comment or like any article of your friends. The extension doesn’t replace the website but it pretty well come close to it.
Rapidly access your twitter account to see, mentions, direct message and twitter feed. You also have the ability to respond and post directly from the extension. Enjoy. It is a perfect replication of twitter. I don’t even bother going to twitter.com anymore with this app.
Extensions that deserve a mention
