Here’s a list of 5 Google Tasks extensions for Google Chrome which you can use to more easily manage Google tasks when using Chrome. For those who aren’t familiar with Google Tasks, it’s a service that offers task management from within Gmail. Tasks can be added manually, or they can be created from emails that you receive. That way you get to have messaging and task management all on the same place.
Following extensions and apps for Chrome can better integrate Google Tasks into Chrome.
