20 Extensions Every Chrome User Must Try - 0 views

  •  
    Mostly useful for people who use Chrome, but most of these undoubtedly have analogues or versions in Firefox. A lot of good extensions for news, productivity and research, plus some stuff that's just plain cool.
  •  
    While this website is helpful, many of the apps do not seem to be useful to everyday browsing, excluding a few in the Education section of the article. Granted, I still went and downloaded a lot of those apps because, as Nathan said above me, they're pretty cool.
  •  
    Browser extensions are definitely neat -- all the browsers have them now, pretty much. Firefox was the first browser to be extensible like this, so there tend to be a lot of extensions available for it. Zotero, which we're going to learn about next week, started out as a Firefox extension.

    I thought about defining "extension" in core concepts, but it's maybe a little more advanced than that. Extensions (also called "add-ons" and "plugins") are basically little apps that "plug in" to a big app.

  •  
    Good link, Claire, and because it comes from Microsoft you can be pretty sure it's good info. Don't forget to comment on the link you share, though, with a brief evaluation of what you've shared. I'll give you credit this time, though.

SQL Tutorial with examples - 0 views

  •  
    A site that gives you different examples of SQL's and how to use them.
  •  
    Thanks, Vincent, though learning SQL is a pretty advanced skill. It's unlikely you'll need it anytime soon, certainly not for this class. I do regret asking the question on the exam -- maybe I'll give everyone automatic credit!
