Imagine this scenario. You sit down at your desk with a cup of coffee. Open up your computer to a blank desktop screen. You move your cursor to the bottom doc where your most used applications live. Click on the colorful, beachball looking Chrome icon. Your browser fires up, and all of this happens instantly:

  • Google Chrome welcome you back by name.
  • A beautiful new wallpaper, the time and local weather appear on your open tab.
  • Chrome asks you to what your main focus is so you can stay on track.
  • Your projects, resources, and calendar are one click away.
  • You are also one keyboard shortcut away from automatically logging into any needed websites.

This episode of Able Business Radio shows you how to optimize your online work environment with Google Chrome.
