Join Nick Brazzi for an in-depth discussion in this video Installing extensions, part of Up and Running with the Chrome Browser.
- Extensions are little add-ons for Chrome…that will give you quick access…to lots of different tools and services.…Take a look at the top of my window here.…Right next to the address bar,…this button is an extension that I've already installed.…If I click on this, for this particular extension,…I can see my Twitter feed.…So this extension lets me view Twitter.…I can also compose a new tweet from here.…If I hit "Compose tweet" here,…I could write whatever I want to…and I could post it to my Twitter account.…
I can also view my direct messages and my favorites…and a bunch of other stuff.…But it's really quick.…And I can click on that button any time.…This lets me keep an eye on things…when I'm working in Chrome.…Let's install another extension to see how this works.…It's pretty similar to installing a Chrome app.…I can either go to this address...…or if I have the bookmarks bar open,…I can go to the App Launcher, and I can hit Web Store here.…
Now there are just too many useful extensions,…so I can't really take you on a tour of the best extensions.…
