    "This extension is really helpful and useful to me. I don't have to always keep an open tab for my gmail. With the gmail extension I'm notified of my emails without me needing to always check for new messages in another tab or on my mobile gmail app."

    "I never encountered any problems with the extension. It helps me make quick video and audio calls really quick and without much fuss. However it slowed my browser a little after the update."

    "I always look for stuff that will make my life easier and this is one of those stuff. I have the habit of saving pictures in my google drive rather than on my desktop coz I don't wanna lose so much space. But I think they have to fix something, it's that every file I save is saved all in the same folder instead of being automatically sorted."

    "It works like a bookmark but more flexible so it's a really great feature for me. I encounter a lot of stuff online that I want to go back to but then I'd have to be using the same device to do that. But this feature syncs my saved pages and photos to my other device apps so that things that I saved are accessible to me anytime and anywhere."

    "I use google translate most of the time when encountering foreign words in the foreign sites that I visit. Also for when translating tweets of non-english speaking artists that I follow on twitter. It does the job and gets the gist of what's being said though not entirely accurate. It translates words in the most literal sense most of the time."
