Have you heard of the technology Chromoting? For just as from now you will begin to hear about it thanks to this technology was first used for the extension Chrome Remote Desktop by allowing access from one computer to another via the browser chrome.
The basic idea is that you can control a computer remotely from another computer safely. This extension must be installed on both computers, the computer being shared session that generates the code that will need introcirse from the remote computer seeking access to it, allowing the remote computer from a complete control system safely.

The extension is cross-platform, being able to use both Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Chromebook and is made in beta in order to demonstrate the core technology Remoting Chrome and get feedback from users.

As a further point, this extension uses the Google Talk technology for sending messages, so both of you share a session in the system where sharing is installed and also allows communication between users.

I think most of us use two or more browsers on our PCs, isn’t it? And sure, a lot has happened to us we want to open the same tabs that we have in Firefox, but Chrome. Well well, to avoid being copied each of the links, we can do is simply install an extension in Firefox and the task will be reduced to a couple of clicks.

Of course, to do, you must be a user of Firefox and Chrome, because if you use other browsers, this will not help at all. Anyway, that said, I tell you what this extension is called Open in Chrome. Suppose we have about 10 tabs open in the browser window Firefox, and Chrome have about 4 tabs open. Then, not to be changing every second window, we want to export those 10 tabs of Firefox to Chrome, and so only work in a browser window.

So if you have installed Open in Chrome, which we have to do is go to the Tools menu in Firefox, to click the “Open tabs in Google Chrome” and ready. The 10 tabs appear next to the 4 they had in Chrome. Now, if the browser had Chrome open, then open a new window. Or if you had multiple windows of Chrome open the tabs in Firefox appear in the latest Chrome .

Easy, right? To download the extension Open in Chrome, they click the link below. I hope you have served, have any problems? Do comment below.

Must-Have Google Chrome extensions

When Google Chrome launched in 2009, many users said they loved the speed and power of the browser, but were reluctant to change over until such a time as Chrome would support their favorite extensions.
Well, your wait is over with the public release of Google Chrome 4.0 for Windows.
While those who have been using the beta version for some time already have had extensions, this is the first time it has been offered to everyone who uses Chrome. As with any browser extension situation, we do not recommend installing so many as to make your browser slow down.

AdBlock: By far one of the most popular extensions for Firefox, it isn’t a big surprise that this add-on made the leap over to Chrome as soon as possible. AdBlock does just as its name says and blocks you from seeing ads on sites you visit around the Web.
Chromed Bird: Chromed Bird adds a Twitter client to your Chrome browser and allows you to interact with your Twitter account by accessing your stream, @replies and direct messages. You can also compose, reply, RT, share, favorite, delete tweets and create short URLs within the extension

FlashBlock: Similar to AdBlock, FlashBlock blocks all instances of Flash animations on a page, whether they be ads or something else.  This extension does leave you with a placeholder for the animation, and you can click on it at any time you want to to run the missing element

Google Voice: The Google Voice extension allows you to access all of the features of your Google Voice account including access to your inbox, click-to-call features on phone numbers on Web sites, sending SMS texts and more.

Google Wave Notifier: While Google Wave is a powerful new tool for communication and collaboration, one of the most notifying aspects is that you have to log into the service to see if you have any updates to your Waves.  The Wave Notifier displays your unread number of Waves for you and gives you quick access to your account.

RSS Subscription Extension: It’s unclear why Chrome is missing the standard RSS detection that other browsers have for sites you visit, but this extension will solve that little mystery for you.  The RSS button will appear in the address bar and by clicking on it you can choose which feeds to subscribe to and what reader you want to use.

Xmarks: Xmarks is a popular bookmark & password synchronization tool that allows you to sync your data across not only multiple computers, but also different browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.  It’s the perfect tool for people who have computers for home, work, laptops and more.
