Email, Calendar and tasks in Google Chrome

Ever since Google Chrome had extension support i fell in love with this browser. About a couple of week after the initial release of the first beta, thousand of extensions emerged. I was getting annoyed to have a tons of applications running on my computer and outlook was a big chunk. Gmail was able to replace the email part of outlook by adding pop3 accounts and Google Calendar and task as the scheduling part of outlook.

Using all those Google web application is all good but it lack of desktop notifications and you have to open the app in a tab to be able to use it at its full capacity but you still don’t have any reminder popups.

But now with 2 Google Chrome extensions you can have Desktop reminders using the new Google Chrome desktop notification API for you email and Google Calendar events. Google Mail checker Plus and Google Calendar checker Plus have a Desktop notification feature.

I addition to these two other great extension i also use Google Tasks by OpenBit to manage my Google tasks, even without desktop notifications it is still a nice extension to have since it give you a quick way to see/create tasks using the Great Google task feature in Gmail and Google calendar.

Nice Bookmark manager coming in Chrome dev

That’s right!  According to Downloadsquad Google Chrome developers will bring a better – and more Chrome-y — bookmark manager to the browser.

The new ‘tabbed bookmark manager’ currently looks like what you see in the screenshot. Rather than spawning a new application window as Google Chrome does, the new version opens alongside your current set of tabs (like the new tab page). Items can be dragged and dropped and you can create new folders and items via the tools menu. You can also sort and search your bookmarks.

The manager can also be accessed by typing chrome://bookmarks in your Omnibar.While the update is a welcome one for Windows, Mac, and Linux users of Chrome, it is an ideal feature for Google Chrome OS. Spawning additional windows isn’t the best UX decision on a browser-based operating system.

The new bookmark manager is only currently available in the Chromium buildbot releases. Download a current snapshot build and try it for yourself, or check out a screencast on [DownloadSquad]!
