I have tried nearly all the Google Chrome browser extensions that have been developed to take screenshots. I recently discovered a new one called “Handy Screenshot“. What I really like about this screenshot utility is the simplicity where you have three screenshot choices: (full screen / visible part / select screen). Also built into the utility is a simple editor where you can crop, draw arrows, insert text, etc…You can even assign hotkeys to launch the utility. “Handy Screenshot”, in my opinion, is all that you need and is a perfect addition to your Chromebook.
You can get “Handy Screenshot”, for FREE, at the Google Chrome Store (see source link below)…
Folks, if you are a Google Chrome browser user, this quick note-taking and note-keeping app, called “Notes for Google Drive” is a great browser extension. The best part about it is that it will autosave your notes to your Google Drive account. This has come in really handy for me when blogging…
Sick of emailing yourself notes, links and ideas? want to keep everything in Google Drive? Notes for Google Drive lets you keep all your notes right where you want them.
* automatically saves to Google Drive as soon as you start typing
* drag and drop reordering of notes
* quick access buttons for opening and editing in Google Drive
* does not require you to be signed into Chrome. This is perfect for when you want to access your notes on work and non-personal computers.
To me, if you are a Google Chrome browser user, “Popup My Bookmarks” is a must-have browser extension that allows you to get to your bookmarks easily from the toolbar. I like the idea that the dropdown panel is customizable (i.e. panel size, font size, etc…). This extension will automatically load your bookmarks from the Chrome bookmark manager and will keep them in sync.
Happened across this Google Chrome Browser extension that is very impressive. What you can do with this is open a web page and strip out all the nonsense (ads, popups, comments, etc..) into a readable format where it makes the content you are focused on easier to read, print, etc… Once you have the content opened up in Just Read, you can click on the “garbage can” (at the top), go into deletion mode, and remove the content you do not want. If you are a Google Chrome browser user, you can get Just Read by clicking on the source link below. The author’s web site is HERE …

A new Chrome extension turns Google Tasks into its own full-screen thing. The aptly named “Full Screen for Google Tasks” gives you a bigger and better interface that Google should have provided in the first place, though it isn’t perfect.
Google Chrome is an excellent browser (PRO); but, at the same time, it is a data collection software apparatus that reveals a lot about you (CON) through your browsing history (and other means). Google Chrome is also key when it comes to owning a Chromebook where the operating system is Google Chrome. What I have found that people do not understand all of this and do not know you can go into the settings in Google Chrome to clean out the history, cookies, etc… that are the tidbits of information that reveals where you have been on the internet. Going through these steps to clear out this data can also be a pain, even for the seasoned user.
The solution that I use, on my Windows computer and my Chromebook, to protect my privacy (and recommend) is a Chrome browser extension called “History Eraser“. Once installed, you simply click on the eraser icon, on the toolbar, then click on “Run Eraser”. It doesn’t get any easier than that and I can guarantee you will see a performance boost, especially if you have not done any browser cleaning in a very long time or at all. I usually run this following each browser session.
There are other settings in “History Eraser” to look at, as well. For example, I placed a “checkmark” next to “Close All Tabs Before Cleaning” to reduce the memory load and to ensure the cleaning process is accurately performed. You will also see “Easy-Medium-Hard” buttons at the bottom of the window. My advice for folks at home is to leave it at the default settings and you will be good to go. The more advanced buttons are more technical in nature and may only get you into trouble.
If you look at the screenshot above you will see that “History Eraser” (by the default settings), cleans out many items and will do it safely. I have been using this software (browser extension) for a very long time and it has worked well for me.

Microsoft now offers a layer of protection for Google Chrome through a browser extension called ‘Windows Defender Browser Protection“. If you are particularly concerned about malicious links then this extension will provide an extra safeguard.

If the malicious link matches one on the list, Windows Defender Browser Protection will show a red warning screen letting you know that the web page you are about to visit is known to be harmful, giving you a clear path back to safety with one click.
For those of you who use the Google Chrome browser, “Shortcuts for Google” is a good browser extension that will help increase your productivity. This extension serves as a launcher (that can be customized) to display Google™ shortcuts as buttons in a space-saving popup next to your address bar. Reach services like Gmail, Google Drive, Google Maps, Google Calendar, and many more in just two clicks from your browser. The extension includes more than 500 Google services and websites. What sold me on this extension was not only the option to get to my favorite Google services but the option to create buttons to my favorite URL’s (or websites), like Facebook, my local newspaper, etc…
