With the emergence of so many web-based applications and services, we do most of our daily tasks within the browser. The browser has now become the universal productivity platform.
Undoubtedly, Google Chrome is the most widely used browser and it supports a wide variety of extensions and add-ons that enhance the browser’s functionality. With these plugins, you can get more done within a short time. Here are some of the best Google Chrome extensions.
- Google Keep
This tool is a great note-taking app that you can use to write reports and draft an article. It is a fast, lightweight extension that makes it so easy to write notes with the click of a button. Google Keep is less cluttered than Microsoft OneNote and Evernote. The initial layout allows you to concentrate on jotting down notes quickly instead of the array of features for formatting text and organizing notes. If you need the other features, you can always load the full-fledged app.
Papier is an extremely simple note-taking app that provides greater accessibility than other desktop apps. All you need to do is install the Papier extension and open a Google Chrome tab and you have an instant page to take notes. It saves your work for you automatically and enables you to do basic formatting.
This uncluttered note taking app does not use the file storage system so you can easily write down your thoughts with basic rich text formatting. No need to bother about filenames and retrieving old documents. But since it does not contain a lot of standard notepad features, it works best as a brainstorming tool.
Momentum makes it very easy for you to plan your day at work and achieve maximum productivity. This tool contains a number of widgets including a to-do list, a clock, and local weather, which float above an ever-changing background. You can change almost all the elements of the interface to suit yourself. You will definitely love the focus widget that appears in the center and shows your principal goal for the day.
Todoist is one of the best to-do list management tools you can use with your Chrome browser. The extension button for this app adds a very useful task list to the browser toolbar with a lot of features. To add a task you can type or turn the active tab to one of the items on your list. It also allows you to set your priority items and add a deadline date, or a recurring date for each item on the to-do list. It also shows your schedule for the coming seven days in an attractive interface.
If you are already making use of different apps to manage your to-do lists and projects, Taco can help you to bring them together and arrange them in one place. This tool connects to a variety of services like Trello, Basecamp, Asana, Wunderlist and Evernote. Then it pulls all your lists and projects into a single tab. From here, you can re-arrange them with the aid of the Up Next list using a simple drag and drop feature. This makes it possible to act on any of these projects without the need to open each individual app. Taco can also filter your tasks according to projects or be used as a simple to-do list.
The apps highlighted here will help you to get more done in a short time because they are integrated into your normal workflow. You will not need to open so many apps and consume a large amount of system resources to get your work done.
