I'm starting to use the Chrome web browser a lot and love all the extension tools. Here is one I have been using and I just love it. It's called "Incredible StartPage". Check out the video below for and explanation.
Do you have a extension tool that you love?
Very cool. I need to take a look at that one. Another extension I like is Web of Trust (WOT). WOT helps you find trustworthy websites based on millions of users’ experiences.
I must admit- I LOVE CHROME. Here are several of my favorite apps and extension resources, but my favorite Chrome apps are:
My Story, WeVideo, SlideRocket, Lego builder and Build with Chrome, Google Maps, Aviary, Pixton, EasyBib, StudyBlue, GoAnimate! for Schools, DODOnews,DOGObooks, InstaGrok, Powtoons, PicMonkey, CK-12, Laboratory Games, and so many more!
Favorite Extenstions: Goo.glURL Shortener, PicMonkey, Thesaurus, SimilarSites, dotEPUB, Webpage Screenshot, Connect in Chrome, GoTweet, Notes Anywhere, Turn Off the Lights.

I am going to check out Juan's recommendation - incredible start page.
I will add that I love using the google search bar as a unit converter and calculator.
(this is, i think, the millionth time i've had to retype a post, as i have issue with accidentally hitting the "reply to orginial post" button after typing my response. then, the page reloads, and i lose my response. love doing things over and over due to my own ridiculous inability to pay attention.)
anyway, i have yet to download google chrome, mostly due to a lack of being informed about what google chrome can do for me. i appreciate you guys sharing all of this helpful information and advice. i have read what you've all said and watched the youtube video/review, and i do think that a quick translater, a calculator and short url and qr creator could all come in handy, as well as another tool for screenshot taking and bookmarking. i'll see if i actually get around to downloading it, myself, but thanks for the encouragement and information.
(now, this time, i'm going to click, "add reply.")
Yesterday I was doing a Flipped Classroom Workshop and one of the participants wanted to edit a video they captured on the ipad. I was able to show him how to upload it to WeVideo and he was able to edit the content on the web from his laptop.
Very cool free video editing tool.
