Downloads - click it to see all your downloads
Awesome Screenshot (Neil mentioned it) - like the snipping/grabbing tool
Instant Translation - quick translation
Adblock - except you are supposed to give a donation
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.
You may also like to use QR Voice to create a text to computer voice message (in 40 languages) and then it creates the QR Code for you.
Also, if you are looking to orgainze your QR Codes and keep track of them here is a nice QR Code template from Tammy Wocester that can be accessed through Drive Template.
If you are looking to create that ultimate scavenger hunt with QR Codes, tap into Russel Tar's tool from the UK called QR Treasure Hunt
And if you want to make that ultimate "pretty or fancy " QR code, my favorite is QR Snipp. You can even add an icon in the center, change the colors and the visual playback of the QR Code.
(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.")
Here is my latest and favorite Chrome extension that lands in your Gmail menu bar, it is called Chrome Bitmoji.
Great way to send a customized avatar emoji of yourself along with your email message- see example below. Try it and see how you like it :-)
I love the extension Grammarly It lets you spell check and grammar check while you write online. It is working right now as I type this reply. It checks my writing when I type an email, write a blog post and even write a tweet on Twitter.
