Manage Google Tasks Through Google Chrome Extension

Many a times we find it difficult to remember all the things to be done. Specially, when we are piled up with a number of tasks either we forget some of them or we can’t perform properly due to the overburden. So, there arise the need of task management. And the good option for this is Google Tasks. We can add the tasks and its details whenever we want. Though the application is very helpful and easy to use. But if talk about going to the webpage every time we have to make a new entry, it is quiet difficult. So, I would like to review an extension named as Google Tasks.

Google Tasks is a very small Google Chrome Extension which will be installed very fast. And it will present next to the address bar along with the other extensions. It will help you to enter, delete or manage the tasks from the browser. There is no need to that particular page to make the changes. The snapshot below displays the interface of the extension.
