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.

Stop Chrome from running in the background after closing …

I never let Chrome run in the background, ever. Chrome has a habit of running in the background even after explicitly closing it. The main reason is that an app or extension might keep it awake to complete tasks such as sending a notification. It may also be allowed to start up with your PC, so it will keep processes open even if you didn’t open Chrome at all.

If you’ve ever typed anything into a Google Doc, you can now play it back as if it were a movie — like traveling through time to look over your own shoulder as you write …

This is possible because every document written in Google Docs since about May 2010 has a revision history that tracks every change, by every user, with timestamps accurate to the microsecond; these histories are available to anyone with “Edit” permissions; and I have written a piece of software that can find, decode, and rebuild the history for any given document.

Take FULL webpage screenshots. Capture, edit and save them to PDF/JPEG/GIF/PNG, upload, print, send to OneNote, clipboard or email …

Here is a great “screenshot” application, called “FireShot” that you can run straight from your Google Chrome or Chromium-based browser. I am also seeing FireShot is available for Firefox and Microsoft Edge, as well. I have tried many of these applications and what turned me onto FireShot is its’ simplicity and the ability to copy/paste a screenshot into my blog posts.
