Early 2010, we blogged about three tools that help you remotely control your desktop. There are several more tools and a new kid to hit the block is from our very only Google in the form of the Chrome Remote Desktop.

Google Chrome has always been my first choice when it comes to browsers because it is fast, efficient and comes with handy extensions and web apps. Recently, I came across an excellent extension, Voice Search, which enables Google Chrome users to search the web speaking the keyword and it will search the item on the desired search engine. In order to use the extension, make sure your microphone is connected.
There is no such feature in Google Chrome which allows users to manage their sessions so that they can be opened later. Today, we came across an excellent extension for Google Chrome, Session Manager, which enables users to manage their session in Google Chrome and open them quickly any time. The default option in Google Chrome only restores the last browsing session and if your browser suddenly crashes, you can lose all opened tabs.
When you are searching for something on the internet, you might come across websites which are not in your native languages. There are online services like Google Translate which can be used to translate words in to other languages but that can be time consuming. To get rid of this problem, we came across an excellent extension, Bubble Translate, which can be used to translate words without opening any websites.
Ever wondered how fast you could type and how you can improve your typing speed? Recently, we came across an excellent extension, Typing Speed Monitor, which can perform this task. Typing Speed Monitor extension for Google Chrome gives you statistics of how fast you can type, which characters you used the most and how much time you spent typing.
In past, we have covered a great utility, Lingoes, which can help you find meaning of different words. Today, we came across an excellent extension for Google Chrome which can help you find meaning of words just by clicking on them. Google Dictionary is an excellent extension for Google Chrome which helps you find definitions of words as you browse the web.
