Google Drive is useful all by itself, but a number of Chrome browser extensions add more functions to Google’s cloud storage and office apps service. I covered several of these add-ons for Chrome in a previous article, “8 free Chrome extensions that enhance Google Drive.” Following is a fresh batch of Chrome extensions that can improve how you work with and manage files in Google Drive.
1. Drive Companion / 2. Docs Companion
Svelte’s Drive Companion turns Google Drive into a virtual desktop application on Windows. Clicking the Drive Companion icon on the Chrome toolbar launches an application window with the main page of your Google Drive running inside it. Like an ordinary desktop application, its icon (or title bar) appears on the Windows taskbar, and its window frame can be resized.
