Temparks, Store Temporary Bookmarks In Google Chrome

Happens quite often after reading an RSS feed entry, or stumbling upon an interesting link that I have no time to follow at that moment, and that I do not want to keep open in a browser tab. The problem with this approach is that those “read later” bookmarks get mixed with the other bookmarks. It would of course be possible to...

Make Gmail The Default Email Client In Google Chrome

The Google Chrome browser and its open source counterpart Chromium do not have options currently to configure default programs.

Sessions are very handy to save work at a current stage with the prospect to continue working at the same point at a later point in time. Session Buddy is another Chrome session manager that offers a better manageability of sessions. The extension...

We have reviewed several applications in the past that can take screenshots including MWSnap, PicPick,...

Tabbed Browsing Extension TabJump [Google Chrome]

Tabbed Browsing Extension TabJump [Google Chrome]

One great aspect of Google Chrome now supporting extensions as well is the fact that some developers produce extensions that have not been created yet for Firefox.

The tabbed browsing extension TabJump might be one of those extensions. TabJump adds a...
