Speed up your online productivity with this Chrome extension

(REAL ESTATE TECH NEWS) Say hello to faster work times with Sidekick, a Chromium-based browser made specifically for people who work on the web.

Sidekick, the Chrome extension that boosts productivity while working on the web.

Working remotely isn’t all that bad, but it could be easier. With all our work being done straight from our computers today, our one, two, or even three monitors can start to feel overcrowded quickly. Those open tabs, windows, and apps are everywhere! As a result, we’re left with little to no organization. To make things worse, memory consumption slows down our computers thus putting the brakes on our work productivity level.

A lot of us are experiencing these same problems. Over the last few months, we have seen web tools that make things better. And now, there’s a new tool that works with Chrome extensions and promises it will be FASTER, too!

Sidekick is a Chromium-based browser made specifically for people who work on the web. It is designed to be the “ultimate online work experience” by combining everything your productivity needs in one interface.

With Sidekick, you “work in apps instead of tabs”. You can pin your apps in the Sidekick sidebar so you can access them instantly. Each app has its own search field, and you can configure notification alerts for each one. As an added bonus, you can have multiple logins. With a simple click, you can switch between your accounts without having to login and logout constantly.

Also, you can “search all your work instantly”. The tool has a built-in search bar with a single shortcut. You can search across apps, tabs, workspaces, contacts, and documents all at the same time. Hooray!

To remove clutter, Sidekick automatically saves open tabs into “sessions”. In the side panel, you can open and create a new session to organize your work.

According to the company’s website, their business model isn’t ad-based so they “can afford a no compromise approach to the privacy.” Instead, “Sidekick blocks virtually every data-grabbing ad and tracker” with its built-in adblocker.

Sidekick also makes it easy to work together. Sidekick Teams lets you “stay on top of every project through your browser.” Workspaces can be created to set up a project with its own session, app Sidebar, and tabs. Additionally, if you need to get a hold of a team member you can see who’s available so you can video chat with them.

The tool makes onboarding a lot simpler. You can set up apps, bookmarks, and credentials for new employees before they open the browser for the first time.

Furthermore, the tool safeguard’s everyone’s data. It can “remotely configure the security of every device connected to your data cloud, even in BYOD situations.” And, Sidekick’s password manager lets you share passwords securely without having to reveal what it is. And, we can all agree this is pretty important.

The company’s website states that Sidekick is the “fastest work environment ever made.” By centralizing everything you could need to do your work, it could create a boost to your productivity on the web. If you’d like to give it a try, you can check them out here.
