What IS an EXTENSION?
Extension icons will appear next to your search bar above the Bookmarks bar.
Below are FIVE of my favorite, must-have extensions!
goo.gl URL Shortener
Have you ever tried to give out a long, cumbersome URL to students or peers?
After clicking this extension, you can shorten any URL and share it with students easily! You can even get a QR code to give to students.
Just go to the page you want the URL for, click the extension icon and a new URL will appear!
Quickly take a screenshot by double clicking "Alt" and the screenshot is saved in your Clipular folder automatically. Once the screenshot is saved, you can draw on it, download it, or share it through email or social networking sites!
You can also click on these saved images and you will be taken back to the original page it came from!
To use, you simply click the TabCloud icon. You will see your current open windows and previously saved windows. From here, you can save open windows, restore saved ones, or delete previously saved windows.
Open a saved window session and the tabs will automatically open for you in the order you saved them in! No need to research or retype in the URLs!
