Use Google Calendar from any Web page while using Chrome.
If you’re a Google Calendar user who’s also a fan of Chrome, you’ll
want this excellent, free extension from Google. With it, you’ll be
able to access your Google Calendar wherever you are on the Web,
without having to visit the calendar itself.
The Google Calendar extension for Chrome installs as an icon on
the upper-right hand side of the screen. Click it and a window pops
out, displaying with your calendar and all of its schedule events
and meetings–just as if you visited it on Google Calendar. Click
any event, and you’ll see event details in the window. If you want
to see more details about any event, when you’re viewing an event,
click the More Details link at the bottom of the screen, and you’ll
be sent to Google Calendar.
You can do more than just view your calendar with the Google
Calendar Chrome extension. You can add events as well. And the
extension displays not just one calendar, but all of your Google
Calendars as well, and gives you the option of which to display and
which to hide. The only down side is that you can’t edit existing
events; for that, you’ll have to visit Google Calendar proper.
Anyone who uses Google
Calendar and Chrome at all should install the Google Calendar
extension for Chrome. It’s a very useful time-saver.
