FREE AT THE CHROME STORE

Marvel Comics

If you use the Chrome web browser instead of Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer, you probably saw an on-screen notice for the Chrome web store. It has thousands of free apps. We did a little shopping (can’t beat the price) and here are three we liked.

Having a large number of browser extensions can slow down your web surfing. But apps only use your computer memory while you’re using them. We just installed the free Marvel Comics app, for instance, which puts an icon on the screen but doesn’t add itself to your browser. After installation, we clicked “Free” and got an “Avengers” comic book and could have gotten dozens of others, including X-Men, Wolverine and Captain America.

The other apps we installed were a calculator and “RemindMe,” which plays a little tune and delivers a pop-up note when it’s time to do something. The calculator is just a regular on-screen calculator. But it’s free and handy to have. (There are many free calculators you can install, including some that do scientific and interest rate calculations.)
