The Chromebook Test: Living In Google Chrome For A Month (Part 12)


After some searching on the Chrome Store I found a Chrome Extension called Save to Google Drive that allows you to take Screen shots in Chrome and directly Upload them to Google Drive.

I've managed to only take 1 screen shot using Save to Google Drive of my blog stats screen using the WordPress Chrome web app.

I've come across one little annoyance with this Extension though, as it seems to have issues taking screen shots of Chrome windows, but yet it has no trouble with Chrome web apps. I don't know if this is a bug in Save to Google Drive o down to the fact that I'm using a Canary build of Google Chrome, and as I've now only got Chrome Canary installed and not got the regular stable build of Chrome installed as well I'm no longer able to check if it's a problem caused by Canary or just a bug.

If I had a Chromebook to hand I'd be able to check the Save to Google Drive functionality from within Chrome OS, so it's probably worth me keeping the Extension again when I've got a Chromebook to test it out on.
