Google Chrome itself is more than just a great browser, it’s a platform.

You can fully appreciate it right after visiting Chrome Web Store, an online marketplace, where you can discover thousands of apps and extensions for Google Chrome.

There’s even a dedicated category for productivity related chrome extensions.

I’m going to show you, in brief, a couple of the best. All of them have one in common – they are really simple and invisible, so to speak.

Because the best products are usually the ones which we don’t know about until we need them.

GOOGLE MAIL CHECKER

This couldn’t be simpler. This extension from Google displays the number of unread messages in your Google Mail inbox.

It also handles multiple sign-in! No need to check all inboxes one after another. You can also click the button to open your inbox.

SAVE TO POCKET

When you find something in Chrome that you want to view later, put it in Pocket.

It automatically syncs to your phone, tablet or computer so you can view it at any time, even without an internet connection. I put into Pocket articles I want to enjoy and usually do so in my “reading hour before bed”.
