Add a Simple to Do List In Chrome New Tab page

To do lists are great for organizing tasks and penning down important events, but the only problem with them is that you have to either use any website or install new software in your system. While there is no harm in using remember the milk or any other service, I would prefer using my browser as a to do list manager.(also read: useful Google chrome extensions)

I am talking about Google chrome and the Things-to-do extension. This extension adds a simple To-do list in the Google chrome new tab page which let’s you write small notes and save them.(read: how to install Google chrome extensions)

When the Chrome extension file finishes downloading, it will throw a confirmatory message. Just click on Installand the extension is added in Google chrome.

How to use the To-Do List

Just open a new tab and you can start adding items to your list as shown below:


Clicking the Title lets you rename the list. After that you can start entering entries in the list entry areaand organize your list. Press the return key and you are presented a new empty list item. Deleting list items is as easy as a mouse click. Just click the red cross button and the entry is removed. All your list items are saved and whenever you open a new tab or restart your browser, you can see your To-Do list reminding you of the important tasks.

Techie-Buzz Verdict

This extension has become an integral part of my system. It is the simplest way to create and save lists right inside the browser. However, this extension only supports the latest dev builds of Google chrome.

Techie-Buzz rating: 4/5(good).
