Ten must-have tools for cloud power users

Turn your cloud power up a notch with these 10 awesome add-ons for Gmail, Dropbox and other online services.


A little tweaking can turn the cloud into a more powerful and personalized place. All it takes is a few simple browser add-ons and other tools to unlock the full potential of the Web's most popular services.

Here, in no particular order, are 10 essential tools to help you make the most of your cloud experience. We're focusing on tools you would use on your computer itself, either through a Web browser or with software you download and install, rather than mobile apps you would use on a smartphone or tablet. But some of these tools do offer a mobile component as well.

Keep in mind that the nature of these tools requires them to be granted a certain level of access to your data. Particularly on the corporate IT front, you may need to seek approval before installing any utility that can process sensitive information.
