Gmail is one of the most popular emails services today. If you are a Gmail user, you should have a pretty good idea that it already comes with tons of lab features to improve the productivity of its users. However, it still lacks few features that many users prefer.
If you are a Google Chrome user, you’ve likely come across a number of extensions in Chrome Web Store to add extra features to Gmail. Today, we have gathered a list of some of the best Chrome extensions that can improve your Gmail experience.
Let’s take a look.
Every computer user has their own preferences when it comes to web browsers. Some might be in the favor of Firefox while others consider Google Chrome to be the best among them. If you ask me, Google Chrome is my favorite browser not just because it’s from Google, but because its simple, lightweight and easy to use with a gigantic library of web apps and extensions to improve the browsing experience.
However, all the extensions that are available in Chrome Web Store are definitely not be worth downloading. So, rather than wasting time looking for the perfect extensions for your browser, we have gathered a list of some of the best extensions available in Chrome App Store ranging from productivity to news to photography and more.

A big part of development, coding, or web design is repeating yourself. No one likes to admit it, but a lot of the work we do is repetitive. A great way to reduce the number of times you have to write something is to save it to use again later using code snippets. Snippets are little bits of code that you have written before that you think you might find useful again later, they could be a specific way to show images on a site, the SQL to create a handful of tables in one stroke, or an entire class for the backend of an ASP.NET web application. Whichever it is you need a place to keep the snippets so that you can get to them when you need them.
This is where the cloud based snippet storage comes into its own. You can access it from anywhere that you have an internet connection, which is everywhere these days. It saves you messing around with memory sticks with your code in text files on, or sending yourself snippets by email (we’ve all done it!) and allows you to find what you want when you want it. I’ve compiled a list of 17 super slick snippet storage sites below in no particular order, check it out, you might find the perfect one for you.

There’s many ways to sell stuff online, but if you’ve decided you want to sell stuff directly from your own site, you’ve still got to figure out how exactly to do that.

In this roundup I’m going to look at three of the best hosted shopping carts available: eJunkie, AmberCart and Cashie Commerce. Each one has its own pro’s and con’s, and hopefully though this article you’ll be able to find the one that is right for you. Let’s dig in.
