Looking for just the right font? Head over to Wordmark, type a word or phrase and hit “enter.” Wordmark will display the word in every font you have on your computer so you can pick just the right one.

Holy smokes! This is awesome. If you’re a Google Classroom user (and if you’re not, why aren’t you?), you will love this. Install the Chrome extension Share to Classroom to your Chrome account and you can push any website to your students’ computers. So cool! Sadly, it’s only for Chromebooks and computers right now.

Let’s talk about Chrome tabs. There are two distinct groups of people when it comes to Chrome: those who limit their tabs and those who, well, don’t (you know who you are). The problem with having oodles of Chrome tabs open is that this can significantly impact your computer’s performance, as Chrome is a nefarious memory hog. There are ways to control this, including tab managers that put certain tabs “to sleep” by suspending their activity, but I’d like to suggest a management tool that’s way more fun. Install Tabagotchi and make tab management fun again! Okay, maybe it was never fun, but you get my drift. Remember Tomagotchi, the kids’ toy of the 90’s? It was a digital pet that you had to take care of, or it would meet an early demise. Well, Tabagotchi works the same way with tabs. Each time you open a new tab, your little Tabagotchi’s health is diminished in some way. Ease up on the tabs and keep Tabagotchi spry! The tech team definitely recommends limiting your tab usage – multiple open tabs is often the reason for poor computer performance.
