Here are the sites that populate my bookmarks bar in my Chrome browser - see if some of them are the same as yours.
- Outlook Web Access - work email is becoming less prominent, but I hate searching for the OWA link to sign in to my work email. I should save myself the one-click and sync Outlook to Gmail. But like, many of you, I prefer to keep my work email and personal email in separate bedrooms.
- Google - A big-time, no-brainer here - my iGoogle dashboard (including Gmail) is getting steadily replaced by my new workhorse - Google+. That said, Google is consistently my Internet launch pad when I open Chrome. Those web tools that I access most frequently all pop from my Google+ site. (Google Docs, YouTube, Gmail, Search, Images, Calendar, Maps, Sites, the list goes on, and on)
- Google Play - Play recently replaced my link to the Chrome Web Store. Google Market would have been a better name, but like iTunes, it sure is nice to do all of my media shopping in one place.
- Twitter - When I need to know what's happening, or I need to share something quickly, there is no better "quick-hit" knowledge base than Twitter. Along with Google+, Twitter is my primary instrument in developing my PLN (professional learning network).
- CourseSites - Created by the folks at Blackboard, CourseSites is a free, and powerful Learning Management System (LMS). I currently developing a couple of on-line classes, and this is the best product that I have tried in the LMS arena.
- the Archer's Bow - This is my personal web site. It's mine and I want to keep it close at hand. You understand, I'm sure.
This is how I manage my one-click life. What am I missing? What is included in your bookmarks bar that should be included in mine? Oh yes, did I happen to mention that Chrome allows my bookmarks bar to follow me wherever I go - that's cool! Thanks for comparing and sharing.
