How in love are you with Chrome’s speed dial feature? If you think it can’t get any better than having thumbnails of eight of your most visited sites on one screen, think again. Speeddial 2 is a Chrome extension that lets you add at least 20 sites to your speed dial, access your bookmarks and browsing history from an auto hide panel on the right side, customize the appearance of the dials and give you stats of your browsing history. Sounds good?
Speeddial 2 not only makes it speed dialing in Chrome easier but it also gives you more accessibility to your apps, bookmarks and browsing history. You can choose how many site thumbnails will appear in each row, how far apart they’ll be spaced and what color will appear in the thumbnail background. The extension also lets you add your own CSS code for customizing the way your dials appear. You can customize the background image from the backgrounds available in the gallery or link to an image uploaded online. Apps can also be positioned for better accessibility on either the top or bottom of the window, you can choose the size of the app icon and the style of the app bar.
All settings that you make for the extension can be exported to another PC through the extensions’ import/ export option. You can sync the extension itself with Chrome sync and settings (styles, background images and preferences) can be exported using the extension’s export feature.
The extension lets you customize practically everything that you’ve added to your Chrome browser and add more functionality to it. It also gives you stats based on your browsing history so you know how many times you visited a site for that day and which are your frequently visited sites based on your entire browsing history.
