Chrome, Google's browser, has been characterized by its speed and efficiency in resource consumption, becoming a strong competitor to FireFox and Internet Explorer in the browser market. One of the strengths of Chrome is that it has the ability to use applications, expanding and facilitating the use that this browser has to offer.

Additionally, thanks to Chrome allows you to synchronize our options, history and data, the Google browser sync also allows to have our applications in different computers as we like. Some of the most prominent, are, Google Docs, which lets you create and share documents like Microsoft Office; Angry Birds, a game that stands out especially in the mobile market for addiction; Chrome Desktop, a utility that let you share with anyone (with Chrome) your desktop remotely, and a lot more of free applications, allowing also synchronization between devices.
Speaking of outstanding applications, we have Google Docs ( docs.google.com ), although many already know, not all have given it the importance it deserves, in addition to many or at least the main functions with which we can count on Microsoft Office, it has a few extras that make it attractive to its users. First of all, Google Docs is completely free, second, it has the ability to share and edit a documents with multiple people simultaneously, which facilitates access and editing on-line between co-workers without any problem of overwriting. Also, If you install the application in Chrome, Google Docs lets you use offline documents you have stored and they will automatically sync when an Internet connection is available.
Also, as all documents are stored with your Google Account (Gmail) you dont have to worry about losing or being unable to access them, because you can do that from any place with Internet access, even from a cell phone or tablet, you can access Google Docs thanks to its application for Android. This lets you work with great freedom, ease of editing and creating documents from anywhere you work.
5. Printing on Cloud (Google Cloud Print)
A great tool that not a lot of people know is Google Cloud Print ( google.com / CloudPrint ), a service for Chrome that allows you to print documents remotely via the Internet, sharing printers you have installed on your computer. This way, working at home, you can send to print a file in your office.
