Week 11: Chrome Extensions Continued

Have you had a chance to install any Chrome Extensions yet?  If you're not sure what Chrome Extensions are or how to install them, check out this post from earlier this week.

The video below highlights a few more of my favorite Chrome Extensions.

Goo.gl URL Shortener

Goo.gl URL Shortener is an extension which allows you to shorten the current website URL and even create a QR code for it.

Magic Actions for YouTube

Magic Actions for YouTube provides several options for you while viewing YouTube videos. You can automatically view the HD version of the video, easily adjust the volume with the scrolling mouse wheel, switch to Cinema Mode with one click to enhance your viewing experience, and even grab a simple screenshot from the video itself.


If you're like me, you may find yourself with lots of tabs open in your internet browser from time to time (or EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.)  Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.

When your tabs are in the OneTab list, you will save up to 95% of memory because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in Google Chrome.


TabCloud is very similar to OneTab. Tab Cloud allows you to save any window session and restore it at a later date or on another computer. Effectively allowing you to sync open tabs between multiple computers.

Honorable Mention ...
