Google Chrome Addon ” Awesome New Tab Page” – Have You Not Tried it Out Yet?
We believe that theAwesome New Tab Page addon has been available for a while in the Google Chrome web store and we must admit folks that we came across it by accident. When we initially installed the add-on I have to confess that it took me maybe 20 minutes or so to get my head around how to use it and how to move the tiles around, deal with tabs and widgets etc, but the process is in fact very easy folks.
It is an add-on that I believe many of you will love, and undoubtedly like many things in our PC lives…others will not.
However what have you got to lose …….by giving it a go?
It looks like what the Windows 8 interface is meant to look like but I digress………..Because what is good ………about this particular add-on is that you can basically have a number of browsing features that you use regularly available once you simply open a new tab .This saves me time…the tiles open instantly and I get what I need to use regularly!!
On a practical level folks, I am working out and about on my laptop on the move quite a lot like many of your good selves, and I have to confess that my eyesight ain’t what it used to be! …… it is because of this partly that I am a fan of this Chrome add-on — My essential services are so easy to see and get !!
If you just look at the graphic below which is a screenshot from my laptop of an awesome new tab,
YOU WILL SEE
That instantly we have a number of web features available that we use regularly immediately available……..
Such as an immediate link to our Facebook and Twitter accounts,
- We have a clock,
- We have a sticky notepad where you can type in whatever reminders you wish for the day or notes etc,
- We have a link to Amazon
- And best of all the Google tile displayed…….. In itself from within links to practically all of our Google services such as Gmail, Maps, Google documents, You-tube, Reader, Google + and much more ……all of these services can be accessed by simply clicking the icon in the Google tile itself.
When you play around with the awesome new Tab Page add-on folks you will see that it is very easy to add ready-made widgets, and to integrate Google apps from the chrome web store and this does help you working on the go by creating your own shortcuts to your favourite sites.
I would be interested if any of you find this add-on useful?
