11 Chrome Extensions That Will Super-Power Your Gmail Experience

11 Chrome Extensions That Will Super-Power Your Gmail Experience | Daring Apps, QR Codes, Gadgets, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it

Google makes the Chrome browser and Google makes Gmail. Naturally, the Chrome Web Store has some excellent extensions to improve your Gmail experience. But it also has several that you don’t need. Let’s sift the gems from the mud.

Note: The extensions in this list work only with Gmail. If you prefer the time-saving Inbox by Gmail, there are separate extensions for that.

Inbox by Gmail is Google's most recent approach to email organization and management. It can give you a simpler email workflow. Find out if Inbox by Gmail can be the better choice for you.

ActiveInbox: Send Mails Later and Manage Email Tasks

If you’re a Gmail power user, this is the best extension you can install. But be warned, ActiveInbox is free for a one month trial, after which it costs $50 per year....
