Google Chrome: The Only Browser You’ll Ever Need

by Victoria Reitano

Ok, maybe not the only browser, but pretty close! I started using Chrome as a way to be more productive about two years ago and I haven’t looked back.

Google Chrome is a free browser for Mac and Windows operating systems that is created by Google. Since it is a Google product, it plays nicely with all Google tools (gmail, hangouts, Google+, drive) and also has a variety of extensions that will help you be more productive.

 To start, download Chrome to your desktop and on all your devices. Then, login with your Google account, on all devices.

Now the fun begins. Download all of your favorite extensions (Pocket, Pinterest, BufferApp and After the Deadline are a few of my favorites). Then, import all of your bookmarks from whatever other browser you were using.

You can create different folders for different activities (work, home, freelancing, blogs I like, recipes, etc) and then organize all of your favorite sites. The best thing about Chrome is that, if you download and login on your devices, all of these bookmarks will be available on every device.

 The truly incredible thing about Chrome is that if you want a certain tab from another device, it’s here as well!

 This is great if you use more than one device at the office, if you work out in the field often or if your office is spread out.
