Convert Chrome browser tab(s) into popup groupings with Popout Plus…

Popout Plus is one of those hidden gems in the Google Chrome store that is not given enough credit for what this extension allows you to do. That may be due to the fact that most folks don’t understand its’ purpose. With this extension, you can create popout browser windows for whatever web site you have loaded into the browser. For example, I can load Facebook into my browser, click on the Popout Plus icon on the toolbar and Facebook will pop out into a nice clean window (similar to a window that you see in MS-Windows). Once it is in that windowed interface, you can resize it, etc… If you go into the options of Popout Plus, you have options to save your windowed sessions so that the next time you load, say, “Facebook”, it will remember the window size, etc… You can also assign keyboard shortcut keys where anytime you open up your browser and desire to pop out a specific web site, you can quickly create the popout (or load a previous one) with the shortcut keys on your keyboard. As I mentioned, this is a gem of a browser extension that I hope the developer takes heart and keeps up to date.

A Chrome-based browser extension that will announce the time periodically, set custom recurring reminders, and display the time and date…

I had been looking for a talking clock for my Chromebook and this is as close as it gets with the Chrome-based browser extension called, Talking Clock… This extension is a very nice extension in that it allows you to set announced reminders and set periodic times where the time will be announced. For example, I have the extension set to announce the time every 15 minutes. Also, if you click on the extension icon you get a quick read on the date and time. Another setting is available where you can display the current time as an overlay on the toolbar icon, as well. Nice browser extension that serves a good purpose; especially, for those who spend a great deal of time at their computer.

Extensions can add a wide range of new features and functionality to Google Chrome, but sometimes you need to remove or disable one or more of them. Here’s how to do it…

Many folks I know don’t know what browser extensions are. Browser extensions are small software modules or add-ons for customizing a web browser on a desktop computer. Extensions for browsers on smartphones are not readily seen or available. If you have a desktop computer and use a Chrome-based browser or Firefox (plus many other browsers), I encourage you to experience browser extensions. Browsers typically allow a variety of extensions, including user interface modifications or add-ons that enhance your browsing experience to improve productivity. If you follow the source link below to “How-To Geek” you will learn how to uninstall or disable extensions, if by chance you installed one you do not want. If you are interested in trying some browser extensions and are a Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge user, visit the Google Chrome Store where you will find a wide array of various extensions. Firefox also has its’ own array of extensions as well. Do I use browser extensions? Absolutely… I have about 20 of them installed and have tried hundreds of them.

It only works with a Microsoft account for now, as you’ll need to sync your passwords to the Microsoft account to activate the feature. Once you do so, the next time your password is detected in breach you’ll begin receiving real-time notifications.
