ChromeDeck, it's TweetDeck for Google Chrome

Check this out Google Chrome users, TweetDeck has created an app, named ChromeDeck, that runs it’s multi-column twitter client in a tab. How cool is that?

Typically I use two monitors to work. On my laptop’s screen I have my email, Chrome, a note pad, and Pandora open. On my second monitor I have TweetDeck and Evernote going. For me this is how I am the most efficient, but at least 2x a week I’m not in an office. I’m out hoboworking from whatever coffee shop or cafe will have me and I’m definitely not lugging another monitor around.

On those days I’m grateful for ChromeDeck. It doesn’t slow down Chrome much, and makes one less window I have to switch between and lessens the separation anxiety when I’m away from my second monitor and all of it’s glorious screen real estate.

How Does ChromeDeck Compare to TweetDeck?
Pretty well.

Between the two I still prefer the desktop Adobe Air app,  but the Chrome version can hold it’s own. Even though it’s in a slightly different layout we still get all the features we’ve come to expect and love. Multi-column and multi-account controls, searches, and viewing lists.  It even does automatic link shortening via bit.ly.

In short there’s no reason why you shouldn’t give it a try and let me know what you think about it.

      No, it just takes some time. I didn’t get it when I first used them, but now I can’t imagine not using TweetDeck.

    The desktop Adobe Air app is indeed great however, compared to Chrome it looks very promising as well though I haven’t got to use it as long as I have been using Adobe Air yet. It is in an entirely different layout but with the same features that Adobe Air has.

      Thanks for the comment, the layout is what I struggled with at first too. With everything moved around, but looking so similar it was a bit disorienting. I prefer the Air app, but in a pinch the chrome extension works rather well.

    I really don’t like that they got rid of the scheduling function. It made my day so much more efficient!
