Here’s a list of 5 Google Chrome diagram drawing extensions which you can use to draw diagrams and flowcharts inside Google Chrome. Modern lifestyles have a tendency to make us lose track of important tasks and ideas. By drawing diagrams you can write down important tasks and develop ideas in such a way that they are more easily remembered and presented to other people.
If you’re for example drawing diagrams and flowcharts for a business presentation. These extensions can come in handy in that situation. Let’s start.
Gliffy Diagrams is a diagram drawing app that runs in its own window. To use it, you’re first gonna have to register an account.
Gliffy supports diagrams, flowcharts, organizational charts, UML diagrams, etc. Left sidebar and the top toolbar have all the usual shapes and tools for creating diagrams. Everything else is the drawing area where you draw diagrams. They are automatically saved as soon as you close down the app window so that you can continue editing them the next time that the app is started. Created diagrams can be exported as JPGs or PNGs.

Creately – Online Diagramming
Creately is another diagram drawing app that lets you create different types of diagrams and flowcharts inside Google Chrome. It requires a connection to your Google account in order to access the actual editor.
When starting editor for the first time, Creately offers you with a blank document or a diagram template which you can then continue editing, see image above. List of shapes is available in the left sidebar. Created diagrams are saved online and they can even be shared with other Creately users.
ckwnc is a very unique diagram drawing extension which uses a syntax very similar to the C programming language in order to render UML diagrams.
You can see this free diagram drawing app in action on the image above. It might not be the easiest way how to create diagrams, but it’s very powerful. There’s an extensive documentation to help you figure out how syntax works.
With Simple Sequence you again get to control how the UML diagram on the left looks like with code.
Learning the code isn’t that difficult, but if you would like to use something that offers a bit more speed, something that’s easier for you to use, then make sure that you try the first two extensions from the top.

So that we don’t finish the list with complicated diagram drawing extensions, here’s Diagraph that’s simple in the sense that you actually get a point-and-click approach to creating diagrams.
DGPH files are supported for diagram import-export. Diagrams created with this diagram drawing extension have a tree-like arrangement, branching out from the main root node. They are great for idea development.
There’s a little something for everyone in this diagram drawing extension list. Those looking for a simple extension, that still uses point-and-click should give Diagraph a try. Others on the list are also quite useful, each in their own way. Which one do you think is best? Leave a comment down below.
