  1. Hi Shivkumar,

    Yes indeed, without these 3 you really cannot work efficiently 🙂

    I don’t go online as much as I have them on my computer itself so that I can work offline to keep away from all kind of distractions, but they are great extensions from Chrome for those who work online all the time or want to send messages or files to others through Gmail specially.

    I cannot work without MSWord and love all the formatting it does so well. I haven’t ever tried Google Drive as yet, though it must be similar I guess and now they even have the image feature attached to it- so that makes it better than simple Word.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

  4. Hi Shivkumar,

    I use these three programs daily but I wouldn’t be able to use them with the extension mainly because Chrome kept shutting down on me unexpectedly so I had to stop using it months ago. Their tech support couldn’t explain what was happening after having done every single thing they told me could be causing it, nothing works. I loved Chrome but not any more.

      Hello Adrienne Ma’am,

      Glad to see you on STL, I warmly welcome your first visit on STL 🙂

      These three program are indeed most important for our daily documentation work. These extension help us to keep our work safe on cloud which can even be share with our friends or colleague and we don’t have to worry about the system crash from our end.

      Working offline help us to fulfill our business need but we have to take extra efforts to keep them safe from unexpected system failure.

      It’s sad to know that your are facing problem with Chrome and chrome developer fails to help you out. And now you have switched to another browser which is not a good sign for their developer and they must look after the issue as soon as possible.

      Thanks for coming by and sharing your view.

      Hope to see you again. Have a great day ahead! 🙂
