Chrome extensions are good for business

Which is the biggest browser worldwide? Chrome. Google Chrome. Second is IE and third Firefox. (source) How to make sure that you can be present EACH day on the screen of your consumer. Email?

Yes, there are options to make the people install whatever piece of software you want, but that’s called badware and it’s not a nice thing to do… So, what type of extensions gives the biggest added value (and are installed the most)?

So, here are some questions (and answers): What can be done? – daily interaction with the clients/influentials, even via a simple feed (each...
