Gmail which is one of the most used emails today is being used by almost everyone today. We receive our daily communications on our emails, and Google Mail is the widely used medium for it. So it happens most of the times that we need to check our emails which require an active internet connection all the time.

Suppose your internet is down due to some reasons or you wish to access the emails offline, then it is possible if you are using Chrome. With this Chrome extension called Offline Google Mail, you can not only access, read your Gmail emails but also search the mailbox, respond an email and also archive any of the emails without the network access.

What this extension will do is that it will allow you to do all the above said actions however it will queue your actions and will execute them accordingly whenever you go online next time, thereby allowing you to save your time and work offline. However this is interesting to note here that, you should not try this extension if you work on a public computer as other users might access your account.

Your local mailbox will be synchronized automatically with the Gmail server next time you log in. To use this extension, you should open a new tab in Chrome after installing this extension, and in the new tab pane you will see a Gmail Offline Icon where you should click on the icon, and Offline Gmail will load automatically. Just don’t forget to “Allow Offline mail” when you see the options at the time of first usage.

There are lots of websites that provide contents in English language but there are only few websites that provide content in your native language. Though English is accepted worldwide but in some cases it might happen that you are unable to understand some of the English words as they may use some uncommon words. Thus it is difficult to understand everything written on a webpage.

Moreover sometimes it may happen that you come across a webpage where the content is written in a mixture of two or more languages. So in such conditions you can make use of the latest extension of chrome that is known “Auto Selective Translator”. This extension translates uncommon words/phrases from English to a language of your choice.

The most amazing feature that it posses is its inline translation of words and phrases. This inline translation feature helps you create a better understanding while reading the webpage. You will get the meanings or translations in small boxes right over the actual word, hence you are not required to open Google or navigate away from the page anymore.

It also allows you to choose a particular part or a group of words to translate. You can translate the words in almost any language. All you have to do is to install this extension and then you have to choose a button which will be pinned in the chrome’s toolbar after the installation. The button will lead you to the settings tab where you can configure everything as per your needs.

In the wizard you can select the preferred language and the number of words that you want to translate by moving the slider. Summing up, I can say that this is really a good and useful extension. It will prove helpful for those who are trying to learn foreign languages. You can easily grab it from the link given below.

All the students, adults and almost person of every age group usually surf Internet to get updates and to keep aware themselves in this fast changing world. There are web pages which contains useful information, nonsense stuff or both. When I was a student I used to directly take out the prints of those web pages and most of time my teachers caught me.

Here I am going to tell you about a very cool tool by which you can directly edit a web page while surfing and check the changes. The tool is called PageEdit. It is a powerful WYSIWYG editor that lets you edit any HTML page in Chrome and allows syntax color highlighting in source editing mode. Once you install this extension you can edit the whole web page in the same manner as we do in Microsoft word.

Moreover, elements like radio buttons, images, tables, checkboxes, Flash etc, can all be added to a webpage. You can access options such as Paste, Edit Link, and Remove Div etc. when you change the settings and access the toolbar, only the basic tools for editing are available for you by which you can easily edit a web page.

When you right click on an image and then click properties and you will see that a pop-up will appear which will look like a magnifier which will show you a preview of the image, URL, width, height and other related options that you can edit as per your convenience.

When you feel that you are done with the editing process, simply click the Save button in the toolbar or click the Print button to print the customized page. You will then be able to either save HTML file or Download the page. Note that as soon as you reload the page the changes that you made will get disappeared. This extension is only available for Google Chrome users. However, this a good extension provided by the Chrome.
