1. Omni Focus :

Omni focus is a quick to-do task manager that can quickly capture your thoughts and allows you to store, manage and process them into actionable items. You can organize and sync them across devices. The chrome extension adds a small icon that will send your current page and the specific text that you have selected. You can try Send to OmniFocus here.

2. Pinterest Right Click :

Submitting the web content such as images/videos to pinterest is now made easy. With right click, you can send any image or a video to Pinterest.

Right click on any image or YouTube video to send it to pinterest. You can use ‘Pinterest Right click‘ chrome extension.

Similar to Google reader feed chrome plugin that notifies with latest news feeds, this Youtube feed chrome extension updates with the notifications of latest Youtube uploads from your subscriptions.
