PCWorld: New Business Apps For Users Of Google’s Chrome Browser

The five Chrome add-ons reviewed here include one that automatically searches the Web for information about contacts in your Google contacts list and another that lets you create simple slide presentations for showing in a browser window and post them on the Web.

“To visit the Web Store from within Chrome, click the link on the New Tab page and then click the Web Store icon under the Apps heading. If you don’t see one, click here to go straight to the store. You’ll need the latest version of Chrome, of course, because the Web Store has only just been added-in.

Needless to say, if you’re lucky enough to have a CR-48 laptop, these apps will work fine for you too.

1. Rainmaker

Describing itself as an app that supercharges contacts, Rainmaker is able to automagically pull information about people in your Gmail address book from the web, Twitter, Linked In, and Facebook. This information includes mugshots, addresses, phone numbers, and Internet details. Some of it is publically available data and some you have access to because you friended the individual on Facebook, for example.”
