ColorPick Eyedropper – Chromium Based Browser Extension

I use Google Drawings quite a bit for amateur graphic design and have found it quite capable; however, one aspect I find missing in Google Drawings is a color picker eyedropper. As a result, what I did was install a Chromium based browser extension (that will work on Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi, etc..) that gets the job done, called ColorPick Eyedropper.

ColorPick Eyedropper is described as a zoomed eyedropper & color chooser tool that allows you to select color values from web pages and more. If you do any type of graphic design on the computer you already know what this type of tool does. One thing to point out is that the tool is FREE; but, after saving 50 color choices, it may prompt you to contribute. You can get around that by clearing the history. Overall, excellent job by the developer on this tool and has met my needs when working in Google Drawings.

Raindrop.io – All In One Bookmarks and Collections Manager

There are many options to store your bookmarks; but, Raindrop.io has to be best. Here at “What’s On My PC” I have been focused on finding something to store collections of things I am specifically focused on. For example, I may be looking at a collection of Android apps to post about on the blog. Typically, I could create a folder in my bookmark manager, label it Android apps, and just bookmark it; BUT, I wanted something that had a more modern visual appeal to it that would allow me to customize it to my liking.

I think I found what I have been looking for with Raindrop.io… It allows me to store my regular bookmarks; has the option to create collections; has modern visual features; has mobile platform options; has browser extensions; and, it allows me to customize the appearance. What more could I want?

Use Flipboard To Collect The Things That Matter To You

I have been in a mode looking at web apps (with mobile sharing support) that will allow me to create collections of things (from the web). For example, I visit Amazon a lot looking for tech products, and often focus on specific items. As a result, I needed a means to collect what I am specifically looking for into specific collections, categories or titles. There are many applications out there to do this, BUT it dawned on me there is one app that can do this easily (with its’ excellent web browser extension and mobile app support) and it is Flipboard.

Flipboard has been around awhile and is probably one of the most attractive, and most popular applications out there. It is typically used by people as a news app where the news topics are created into a magazine like interface. As a matter of fact, each news topic is created in a magazine (or category) of its’ own that you can add to. The one feature that dawned on me is that you can create your own magazines (or topics or categories). For example, I was looking for hiking boots. I created a magazine called hiking boots and when I came across something of interest (using the Flipboard browser extension) I would add that interest to the hiking boots magazine (or category). I can add my own description or note and even share the magazine publicly (or just keep it private). What is really cool about this is that once you do this, the end result of your findings is presented in a really beautiful type of interface, like what you would actually see in a magazine. The biggest problem I ran into, after saving stuff to Flipboard, was finding where Flipboard was saving “my stuff” or my magazines. To get to “your stuff”, look under your profile where “your stuff” or magazines are presented in a very nice interface.

In summary, with Flipboard you can:

  • Read stories from the best publishers – Find your favorite publishers like the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Reuters, the Washington Post, Axios, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and thousands more.
  • Curate your perspective – Collect stories around specific themes and add them to personal magazines
  • Stay informed – Keep up with the latest news with breaking news alerts and go in depth into the issues that matter to you
  • Dive deep into your passions – Discover personalized stories that interest you

Google Dictionary Browser Extension for Chromium Based Browsers (Chrome, Edge, Brave, Vilvaldi, etc…)

If you are like me, I am often looking up the meaning of words or to check a word for the correct spelling. If you are like me, then check out the (recently updated) “Google Dictionary” browser extension for Chromium based browsers (such as Chrome, Edge, Brave, Vivaldi, etc…).

Once the extension is installed you will be able to double mouse click on a word and the definition of that word will pop up or you can click on the extension’s toolbar icon to look up a word (for the definition and spelling).

This is one of those extensions, if you do a lot of writing, that is a must-have…
