We've featured a few Chrome extensions for Google services before, but today Google released three official extensions. With them, you can view your Google Calendar, clip web pages to Google Docs, and view your YouTube feed right from Chrome's navigation bar.
Thus far, third-party developers have done a pretty good job of helping us keep up with our Google services, but there's something to be said for the real deal. The Calendar extension (which seems to be the most useful of the bunch) lets you view a condensed, Google Gadget-style version of your calendar from the navigation bar. You can add events from the drop-down, or even directly from sites like Facebook and Evite. It will even show a map if it detects a location for the event.
The Web Clipboard extension, which was actually released a few days ago, lets you copy and paste text or images using the Google Docs clipboard, meaning that anything you copy is accessible from Google Docs. This is pretty handy if you want to, say, copy and paste between two computers or something similar. And lastly, the YouTube extension lets you access your YouTube feed directly. All extensions are free downloads for Google Chrome.
What do you think of the new extensions? Do you prefer them to other third-party options out there (like DayHiker or previously mentioned SpeedDate)?, Or will you be sticking with the third-party options (and which ones)? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
