My friend Digital Panda had sent this to me long back ( sorry friend !! ). For some reason, this one was deepÂ berriedÂ in my ever long todo list. So here I am, sharing a very interesting Chrome OS/Chromebook only extension with you all! Oh, it works on Chromium OS too, if you have a hackintosh kind of Netbook set up with that.
Again, this one works only on Chrome OS or Chromium os for now.
Panels does not require an introduction for Chromebook users, or may be even Chrome browser fans. They are those floating windows on Chrome OS that lets you handle a chat or a notification system from any tab/window you are on. It works even when you are on the command prompt of Chrome OS.
Why Panel’s Are Useful
The one use Google has always bragged about is the chat conversation using panels. You chat window remains at the bottom of your screen even when you switch windows or tabs.
Another use is the notification of Chrome OS, which uses Panels to show alerts like, new email, battery status etc. This makes it possible to have a notification system which will not interrupt what you are doing on the system.
An interesting use case for panels will be the kind of multi tab browsing you can have. You can keep the main tab as a panel and move around between other tabs and windows to compare the content or collect information from tabs you have open. Say you are doing a search for a college paper and collecting information on Google docs file. Keep the doc file in panel and copy the required information to it without leaving the current tab. Or take notes while watching a youtube video Â ?
Any other interesting uses you can think of ? Share here !
