Google Tasks is a really handy service that was originally a part of Gmail, which can now be accessed individually. We have already told you about a desktop tool to access Google Tasks, however, if you are a Google Chrome user, we came across a Chrome extension which will allows you access your Google Tasks quickly and easily.
Once you install the extension, you will see a tasks bar at the right hand corner of the screen, whenever you load a webpage (you will only see if when you open a webpage).
Clicking on the Tasks bar will display your Google Tasks to you, you can complete old tasks, add new ones or delete completed tasks using this extension.
Techie Buzz Verdict
If you are a Google Chrome user and want a task manager, that you can access in your Gmail account, as well as integrate with Google Calendar, this extension is a recommended download. Using this extension will make task management that much easier.
The fact that you can edit, delete and add new tasks without having to use Gmail or the standalone Google Tasks website, allows you to use it like just another desktop task management software.
Techie Buzz Ratings: 4/5 (Excellent)

Over a period of time Google Tasks was integrated into Google Calendar and you also had the option to access Google tasks from your desktop, it was getting more and more useful over a period of time.
The Gmail team has finally graduated this feature out of labs, however surprisingly this was the shortest period we have seen a feature graduate out of labs, which would mean that is more stable and widely used.
Starting today you will see a link for tasks under the contacts link in Gmail, the feature no longer requires users to enable it in Gmail Labs.
If you have not yet been using this, we definitely recommend you give it a try.
