As many of us continue to wallow in the throes of a self-induced turkey coma, it’s hard to focus on the fact that sooner or later, the holidays will give way to our regular workaday lives and all of the responsibilities that come with with it. For Chrome users less than crazy about getting back to being productive, there’s Do It Tomorrow, our Chrome Web App of the Week.
As anyone who’s used a computer will tell you, a service or application's usability is directly influenced by its accessibility. In other words, if you can’t get to it, you’re not going to use it. Google in particular has learned this lesson well. Their popular Google Calendar and Gmail services, which were once an online-only affair, were recently given a load of offline functionality by the Mountain View based company, making countless users around the interwebz very happy puppies indeed. Unfortunately, since Google hasn’t gotten around to giving us the same offline awesomeness with Google Tasks, a third-party developer has taken it upon himself to make using Google’s already very useful product just a little bit easier.
Having your Google Calendar and Gmail available for use everywhere you go is a productivity godsend (or a curse, depending on how you look at it), making it possible to stay in touch and plot out your life no matter where you roam. That said, both of Google’s web applications lack anything even close to a useable task management system baked into their interfaces. Fortunately, Remember the Milk’s got a solution to this problem, and we feel it’s slick enough to be our Browser Extension of the Week.
Between looking up new remixes of the Nyan Cat song, reading your favorite blogs and occasionally doing a bit of work, your life has become a pretty complex affair. To keep track of the demands your job, friends and family make of you, you could--God forbid--write down a to-do list, or rely upon an application like Outlook or Google Calendar. If you’re a Firefox user you might also want to consider checking out ReminderFox, our Browser Extension of the Week.
