Web developers, you guys are really lucky. The tools available for you as a group are very powerful and they come in all shapes and sizes. With the introduction of Google Chrome, the community has made some amazing extensions which are very easy to use for every day work. Below you have the ones I consider most useful (starting with the best, of course ).
The beauty of the Google Chrome Extension gallery is that it is virtually uninhibited by any sort of approval process. This allows tons of extensions to be uploaded into the wild in real time. Every couple weeks, I go through and find the best and/or the most promising extensions that have recently been added.
The following extensions are no more than a few weeks old, and thus, it’s highly unlikely that you’ve seen them yet (unless you have no life, like me). Keep in mind that since these are brand new, some of them may have bugs here and there. The good thing, though, is that extensions from the gallery automatically update in the background without the need to restart the browser, and extension developers are usually more receptive to adding/removing/fixing features when their extension is newly released!
There are twenty-three extensions and two themes to try out. Feel free to give any of these a quick try! If you decide you don’t like it, simply right-click the extension and select “Uninstall” — Simple as that! No restarts or anything!
Ready? Here goes!
Google Buzz’s launch week is about to come to a close. And with that, we’re going to start seeing just how buzzed people are about it. But just in case you’re not buzzed yet, here’s a quick round up of the best tricks, resources, and tutorials that have sprung up in the last few days.
So. Google just recently announced Google Buzz. I’m not sure about you, but I didn’t see this coming. Sure, Google was bound to start a social network of some sort at some time; but, I didn’t think it’d be this soon!
After spending a few hours on Google Buzz, we’re proud to present you with 12 simple tricks to help give you a better Buzz. Before you start drinking the Google juice, though, make sure you choose a designated driver! (Ya, I know. Bad joke.)
