SchoolNet webinar recording 'Let's explore Google Chrome and its extensions'

Google Chrome is definitely a fascinating and very user-friendly browser.  Some of the things I love about using it are:
  • You can easily create many different profiles for Chrome so that each email address you have uses its own profile.
  • The URL bar is called an Omnibox because you can search from it just as if you were operating in Google Search. 
  • One can paste all sorts of bookmarklets in the bookmarks bar. i.e. Pin it for Pinterest, ‘Scoop.it’ for Scoop.it etc.
  • There are so many wonderful time-saving extensions to add to the top right portion of the browser.
  • There are many applications that one can install on to the Google Search page for quick access.
