Extension of the Week – Incredible StartPage
Google Chrome is an incredible browser with enormous capabilities. Extensions further extend its functions and make it a better browser.
Though it is a powerful browser, it still lacks in features. Chrome arranges your most viewed sites in order with a screen-shot of the site along with the name written below, which is quite boring and dull.
Today’s extension serves to that purpose and would enhance your Chrome Start page. Incredible StartPage completely changes the way your start page appears. It puts up a notes area to the left which allows you to take quick notes and send them to your friends via Gmail or even upload them to Google Calendar.
To the right of the notes app is the Main Bookmarks Area. The bookmarks area features around 15-20 of your favorite bookmarks. It even allows you to the change the background image of the area. By default, it gives you 4 images to choose from but you could add your own images.
There are two other areas below the notes app. One is Closed and the other is Bookmarks. Closed displays all your recently closed tabs. Bookmarks displays all your bookmarks and allows you to drag and drop important ones to your main bookmarks area.
The extension is highly customizable with lots of images and background colors to choose from.
Sometimes, it fails to display the favicon of a bookmark in the Main Bookmarks bar but the developers are working on it.
