OneFeed Turns Your New Tab Page Into A Useful Personal Dashboard

OneFeed Turns Your New Tab Page Into A Useful Personal Dashboard

OneFeed supports Google (Gmail, Google Drive), Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox and more. You can hook it into as many or as few as you want to use, and add them to your dashboard so you can browse files, updates, email or other notifications on any new tab page. Whether you want to see what your friends are posting to Instagram, want to read your Facebook news feed without opening Facebook in a tab, or you just want to see what the top stories are at your favourite blogs (including this one), OneFeed displays them for you in a tiled layout that’s easy to navigate.

You can also tell OneFeed to notify you when you get new Gmail messages or Facebook notifications and there’s a persistent search bar across the top of each new tab that will search your documents, any connected cloud services you have (Dropbox and Google Drive, for example), your contacts and more.

Even if you don’t want to connect it to any of your services, you can still let the extension collect your most recently visited sites and bookmarks, and display those on each new tab page. You can even drag and drop them into folders, add new bookmarks or pinned sites in a flash, and tab left and right to use OneFeed’s built-in news reader to stay on top of new stories from your favourite sites (or the ones they suggest).

OneFeed asks for access to a lot of data to work, and it works best if you grant it, but even if you don’t want to give it access (OAuth, by the way) to any of your other accounts, it’s still a useful and elegant way to add a little function to your new tab page. The video above gives you a good idea how it works, but you can give it a try at the link below.
