There are a large number of developers creating apps that help you share stuff online faster. This is always achieved by creating shortcuts for tasks. For Google Chrome users, Cortex does the shortcuts job perfectly.

Cortex is a browser extension for Google Chrome. After you install the app you can access its options and connect your Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Instapaper accounts with it.

Then to start sharing text, links, images, and videos all you have to do is hold down the left mouse button for 2 seconds; a circular panel will appear with buttons for your connected networks. Only your connected networks will appear i.e. if you have connected only two networks, then only two buttons will appear.

Click on a button to post the highlighted text, image, video, or website to the respective network. The entire process takes hardly any time at all. With Cortex you are only two clicks away from posting something on Facebook or Twitter, blogging about something on Tumblr, or saving something to Instapaper for later reading.


To see a list of all things you have shared via Cortex, click on the new icon placed in the Chrome address bar.
