HashPlug for Chrome adds Twitter Results to Google Searches | BestChromeExtensions | Scoop.it

Via LifeHacker

 

"Chrome: Remember that six months or so when Google searches displayed tweets along with normal results? Twitter stopped that, but if you're a Chrome user you can add that functionality back in with the browser extension HashPlug.
Twitter results are added to an extra sidebar on the right side of your Google search results screen. You can read the selected tweets, retweet, or share them without having to open Twitter itself.

Building Chrome Apps and Extensions for Fun and Profit

Building Chrome Apps and Extensions for Fun and Profit | BestChromeExtensions | Scoop.it

Via Giuseppe Mauriello

 

Excerpted from article intro:
"At our recent Searchlove conferences, Mat Clayton from Mixcloud gave a tip I really liked. He pointed out that because his company competes with Spotify and others who have installable desktop applications, they need to do extra legwork to stay front-of-mind with their users. One of the ways they thought to do this was by creating a Chrome app.

 

By placing their brand right on the new tab screen of Chrome, they get a little bit of mind-share every time a user opens a new tab. They advertise their app throughout the site using remnant ad inventory any time you visit the site using Chrome - and Mat told us it's had a big take-up.


Great. I thought. Smart. Sounds hard.
Not so.
Mat made an off-hand comment that the entire app was "11 lines of code or something."

Enhance Google Apps with these Chrome browser extensions

Enhance Google Apps with these Chrome browser extensions | BestChromeExtensions | Scoop.it

By Andy Wolber:

"When organizations adopt Google Apps, I typically help people setup their desktops for fast access to Google Apps and enable Google Mail Labs features. The nice thing about most Google Mail Labs features is that they work in any browser.

Chrome browser extensions can also enhance the usefulness of Google Apps. Browser extensions need to be installed in each browser you use. Although, if you sign in to Chrome you can choose to sync your extensions between systems."

Excerpted from article:
"Well that didn’t take too long: After Instagram officially cut off its photo integration with Twitter today, one developer has already created a Chrome extension that reverses Instagram’s change on your desktop.
Michael Schonfeld, a developer evangelist at the payments company Dwolla, whipped the InstaTwit extension together in just an hour and a half. Once installed, it places Instagram photos back into Twitter Cards — just as if the drama from this week between the two companies never happened..."

Six Google Chrome extensions you should think about using

"Google does a great job of making those extensions easy to find and manage. There are also other plug-ins that I use several times a day. Here's a list of what I've found to be the most useful. I'm not going to bother writing my own summaries most of these extensions since their inclusion on the list amounts to my "endorsement" or them anyway."
