Google Chrome Extension – Share to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, email, and any other sharing or saving service quickly and easily with one share button…

Found this Google Chrome extension (called “AddToAny”) at the Google Chrome store that is a “must have” extension; especially, if you are a blogger, facebook user, twitter user, Pocket, etc… What this extension does is install a button on the toolbar that helps automate sharing to services (such as WordPress, Facebook, Twitter and a ton more)… The extension is very customizable so that you can add and quickly get to the services you desire to share information with. For example, after finding and installing this extension, I clicked on the share button, selected WordPress and it pushed the information to my WordPress editor where I could quickly put this post together.

If you use Google Chrome or have a Chromebook, definitely install and teach yourself how to use this. Real timesaver…

Save Webpages To Google

Google recently came out with a Google Chrome Extension called Google Save that gives you another way to bookmark webpages and images (similar to Pocket). I have been playing around with Google Save for approximately a month now and I am already seeing some improvements.  After you install the extension you will see a star type icon. If you want to save a webpage for later viewing simply click the star.  You can also use tags to categorize and organize the pages you save. To get to your saved pages, simply go to google.com/save …

Today’s Geek Squeaks – October 18, 2013

A summary of Today’s Geek Squeaks:

Squeak #1 –(Add Multi-Tab Functionality To Windows Explorer): I am big on using the built in file manager in Windows; however, it is lacking when compared to some of the third party file managers that are available. Today, I found a really cool application (or extension) called Clover that adds multi-tab functionality to Windows Explorer (for Windows 7 and XP) and File Explorer (for Windows 8). The really cool part about Clover is that it looks like the Chrome browser (SEE BELOW);

Squeak #2 – (More News On The Nexus 5): Either Google made a boo boo and posted the Nexus 5 (at $349) on the Nexus site by mistake or they are using a marketing tactic to promote the Nexus 5; either way, it showed up on the site one minute, then disappeared the next (SEE BELOW);

Squeak #3 – (An App For To Check Your Heart Rate): Carol over at Carol’s Vault has a really neat app posted that literally could be a lifesaver (SEE BELOW); and,

Squeak #4 – (A Small Speaker That Puts Out A Surprising Amount of Sound): The iHome iHM60GY 3.5mm Aux Portable Speaker is one awesome speaker for its’ size. If you don’t believe me check out the customer reviews and (SEE MORE BELOW)…

Speed Dial your way in Firefox

Many internet users have specific web sites they visit on a daily basis and often do not venture out beyond that.  If you are a advocate of the browser, Mozilla Firefox, then you know there are browser extensions (add-ons) that you can download to customize and make your browsing experience a more efficient experience.

One of my favorite extensions that I have installed in Firefox is called Speed Dial.  Speed Dial is actually an idea that has been borrowed from another browser called Opera that gives you fast access to your most used web sites.  Speed Dial loads in a tab, and will show thumbnail views of websites you have assigned to Speed Dial. The thumbnails are automatically refreshed in the background when the site changes. Once you have your Speed Dial customized to your liking, you simply click on the Speed Dial button on the browser toolbar to load your thumbnail collection of your most frequently visited sites.  Click on any of the thumbnails to visit the selected site. You can get the Speed Dial extension [ HERE ] .

Features as described by publisher:

Speed Dial will open in a tab, showing the currently assigned websites as thumbnails.

The Speed Dial tab can be loaded automatically in new tabs and windows.

The assigned websites can be loaded automatically by pressing the Control key and it’s assigned number.

Drag & drop reordering.

Add dialog when clicking an unassigned entry.

Automatic refresh of thumbnails by using a background browser (with configurable interval per thumbnail).

Toolbar buttons to access Speed Dial’s functionality (including a drop down of the assigned websites).

Multiple addresses can be assigned to a single dial, similar to the way the home page is handled (separating them with the “|” character).

Weather status, which can locate your position automatically based on your IP (courtesy of GeoBytes). Clicking on that dial will provide the full weather forecast.
