How do you install Google Chrome Extensions


Awesome Extensions

  1. What are extensions?
    1. Extensions are small little add-ons that add features to your browser.  Little programs that add functionality to give the browser a little more flexibility and power.
  2. Caution about extensions.
    1. There are hundreds of extension that are quite cool.  The problem is that if you load a bunch on you start to slow your browser down.
    2. Also there are many that are fun but become addictive time wasters.
  3. Seven Google apps extensions worth having.
    1. Save attachments that you get in Gmail, directly to your Gdocs so that you don’t have to download them.
