Get Your Google On..

Chrome Extensions and Apps:

The Chrome Web Store is an upcoming online store for web applications, owned by Google. It was announced at the Google I/O conference on May 19, 2010 by Vic Gundotra. The software will allow users to install and run web applications unique to Google Chrome, executed from convenient shortcuts.

Use this plug in to access your Google Apps from any tab. This extension is meant to be a replacement for both, iGoogle and the quickly removed google menu. This extension contains an extensive menu of google services. You can access them by browsing through the black menu entries. By clicking the menu entry of your choice, you'll go to the corresponding google service in a new tab.

2-Panic Button

PanicButton makes it easier for you to hide all of your tabs at once just by clicking on a button. They are then saved as bookmarks in a separate folder. Afterwards, the PanicButton turns green and shows you how many tabs are currently hidden. Another click on the PanicButton restores all of the tabs you have hidden earlier.

3-TabJump (Intelligent Tab Navigator)

When working with many tabs at the same time, it's hard to remember which one you want to go next. TabJump highlights frequently used tabs and related tabs so you can easily jump between them. And never worry again about closing tabs by accident, for TabJump can protect them, or even restore closed tabs!Features - Jump to frequently used tabs - Jump to related tabs (tabs from the same site, etc) - Restore recently closed tabs - Lock a tab to prevent accidental closing (only work for tabs loaded after TabJump is installed)
