Google Chrome is a web browser known for its speed, simplicity and efficiency, and security.  Of course there is more to Google Chrome that makes it very attractive:  themes and incognito mode and applications or in the more IT ‘street-speak’, it will run apps.

With i- and smart-phones leading the way with these it is no wonder that they would become available for your pc too.  Google Chrome is well on the way to offering a whole bunch of useful ones.

Google Chrome apps

Free apps
There are a number of free apps available which can be downloaded to Google Chrome which allow you even faster access to certain areas particularly for blogging or linking your social media sites.  Google Chrome’s site lists 670 free apps currently.  Some obviously do similar jobs to one another but they are all designed to simplify and speed up things you probably already do.

A small sample, in brief
Tumblr, Tumblrblogger, Picture To Tumblr to Queue and TumBlogger
These apps all offer easy access to tumblelogging – short to the point and direct copy in Twitter style, instant photo, text and video sharing and more.
