I said: 'Chrome bird is great - discrete and not intrusive but easy to use when you want it'
So here I am... I'm having to work from home today so I get to use the full version of Google Chrome rather than Chrome portable (which is I use at work because I don't have permsission to install the full browser). Chrome portable is great but I can't get it to do extensions (I'm told it does but I haven't had time to figure it yet). To get round this problem I've been using Twhirl but I've been finding its constant presence a bit annoying - especially when working on a small screen. So as I'm working from home I thought I'd see what Chrome extensions had to offer.
You get a very long list of extensions if you just put 'Twitter' into the search box, but if you Google 'chrome extension twitter' - top of the list is Chromed Bird. And like I said on my tweet I think it's discrete and not intrusive but easy to use when you want it. It has loads in the options too.But then again, Gaz says that Free Bird is better.
