Google Docs Extension For Chrome
By on January 24th, 2010

Google Docs is the best online office suite with powerful features of editing, collaboration and sharing. There are many Firefox add-ons already available to integrate Google Docs with Firefox. But a Chrome extension was missing, and finally we have a cool Google chrome extension for that.

This Google Docs extension is actually the iGoogle gadget transformed as a Chrome extension. Using this extension, you can access your Docs account just with a single click. Users can also create new documents, presentations, spreadsheets etc. right from the extension popup. By default, it lists your recent documents, but you can filter files from the showmenu.

Some other Chrome extensions for Google Docs

  • QuietRead: QuietRead is another useful tool for Chrome users. Users can bookmark web pages using QuietRead, and it saves these links in a separate Google Docs spreadsheet. Hence, you can collect links into a spreadsheet. It has option to sort and search links.

  • Import to Google Docs : It provides an easy way to view supported files in Google Docs from the Google search result page. Unfortunately, this extension is not working as expected and developer needs to work on it. :(
  • Docs PDF/PowerPoint Viewer and gPDF : we have already covered gPDF in our popular post: Best Chrome Extensions You Should Definitely Download. These extensions open PDF (and other supported formats like PPT) in Google’s Docs Viewer. You can view these files in an online application, without any desktop tool.

    If you have GMail open all the time (many people do!) then you could use the Google Docs gadget for GMail from Google Labs section. It will also give you the same features.
