Google Chrome Browser, Apps & Extensions
Since GCISD employees and students have Google accounts, there are benefits to using the Google Chrome Browser. Install it by using this link:https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/
With your Google account you can use Chrome apps and extensions to add functionality to your web experience. So, what is the difference in a Chrome app and a Chrome extension? The primary difference is that Chrome apps function as a standalone application or web site while Chrome extensions function across all web sites you visit.
There are many Chrome apps that interact seamlessly with Google Drive. These apps may be found by going to CREATE->CONNECT MORE APPS. You will also notice that these apps have a gray Drive icon next to them in the Chrome Web Store.
All other Chrome Apps are accessible via the Chrome App Launcher icon on your Chromebook or Macbook dock. Two types of apps appear in the Chrome App Launcher. Web Apps are shortcuts to web sites. These have a small arrow icon indicating a shortcut. Packaged apps are standalone applications that open in their own window.
