Extensity, CraftyText, Tab Scissors/Tab Glue, and 1-Click Timer

What are extensions? They are small software programs that can modify and enhance the functionality of the Chrome browser. Chrome extensions extend Chrome’s capabilities. There are a lot great extensions available at the Chrome Web store, but these are some of our favorites.


Extensity allows you to quickly enable/disable Google Chrome extensions. If you’re like me, your toolbar is probably overloaded with Chrome extensions. You can enable and disable extensions with a simple click

You can also launch Chrome Apps right from the list.


Tab Scissors/Tab Glue Ever wish you could see two tabs in Chrome displayed side-by-side? Get frustrated by toggling back and forth between tabs? Then this extension is for you! If you have at least two tabs in the selected Chrome window, Tab Scissors will split that window into two smaller side-by-side windows. All the tabs on the left side of the selected tab will stay in the left window, and the rest will move to the window on the right. When you’re done, just use Tab Glue to put your window back together again!



CraftyText Have you ever been to a PD session where the presenter has shared the link for his/her presentation, but the link is too tiny on the screen to read? CraftyText is the extension that can solve that problem! This extension allows the user's text to be displayed on screen on top of a web page in large type

Now that link can be displayed so that everyone can see it, right on top of your Slides presentation. It’s pretty cool!



1-Click Timer An easy timer that opens with just a click, this extension is great for those timed class activities. You can open the timer in a full size tab so the whole class can see it.

"The only difference between 'I'm techie' and 'I'm not techie'

is the willingness to click on stuff and see what happens."
