Add Google Services Shortcuts to Your Chrome and Firefox

Shortcuts can cut off valuable time from the tasks you perform every day. Therefore, here is how you can get instant access to the whole bunch of Google services by installing a little extension called Google Shortcut. You can choose from more than hundreds of Google services to show up as buttons in a space-saving popup.

This add-on for Firefox and Chrome places a button next to your address bar that brings Gmail, YouTube, Google Calendar, the Play store and dozens of other services right at your fingertips with a single click.

 After installing the add-on, to add (also delete) Google services shortcuts or to choose which shortcuts appear on the popup window go into the add-on’s Options panel.

 In Firefox, you should choose “Advanced Options” and select ‘As drop-down menu’ or the shortcuts will appear as separate buttons.

Google Shortcut can be installed from source here.
