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.

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.

How to Uninstall or Disable Extensions in Google Chrome @ How-To Geek

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.

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.
