I've been using Google Chrome for a long time and I love everything about it. Still, there are people who don't like it I know but I do also have Firefox and explorer on my computer but I usually use Chrome.
So to for fellow Chrome lovers like me and that who loves to travel you might find these Chrome Apps I found and some I do personally use, be useful for your lifestyle. But before all that, you might also have heard about the Chrome Extension so what's the difference between Apps and Extension?
Chrome ExtensionI don't want to fill you in with techie words, so I think I might just show you the difference.
So the Chrome Extension simply shows up on your browser upper right corner. Usually, the extension will be used on each and every websites you visit. Just like the Page Rank checker, I need that extension for work since I'm a SEO expert. So every website I visit the page rank show up, this also means that it also eats up your computer speed and tasks for Chrome and your computer.
Chrome AppsOn the other hand, Chrome Apps shows up when you open a new tab just like below.
So let's go for my list of 5 Useful Travel App for your Chrome browser and which are the following:
Exotic Philippines Hotel Search and Comparison
As we all know we have a hotel search and comparison blog feature here in Exotic Philippines. So I created a Chrome app so that everyone will get an easy and fast access so that they could book their stay and get the best deal.
Website Chrome App
We have Expedia, Travelocity and other booking sites. I know it's frustrating when we have to search on each of the site and compare if which one gives you the best deal. With the Exotic Philippines Hotel Search and Comparison website you'll be able to get the booking price for the hotels from top booking sites, then of course get to compare all the offered booking price on one page and no hassle for you.
Another feature that most of the users of this site loved is that how easy it is to search for hotels according to their budget, preferred location (e.g. near the airport), etc. Then of course you get the best deal from different famous sites in one place.
