Work Better, Smarter, and Faster with Chrome

Chrome Icon I recently had the opportunity to attend a Google Apps Training Bootcamp. The workshop provided an overload of information, ideas, and tips and tricks for using Google, Google Apps and Chrome. There was so much to learn and share but I’ll start with Chrome. I’ve attached a Get Started With Chrome pdf but here are a few highlights.

With Chrome you can:

  • Work offline – Read and write email, view your calendar, and read Docs. Your changes are synced with your account when you are back online.
  • Access hundreds of Apps with one click – From photo editors to project management.
  • Receive desktop notifications – Calendar reminders, chats and email.
  • Search everything from one place – The omnibox (address bar) is a powerful tool! We’ll soon post a quick screen capture of some advanced searching you can do.
  • Pin and save your tabs.

Read over the pdf and give Chrome a try! Feel free to ask any questions by leaving a comment.
