3. Popup for Keep

When you want to stay on the page you are visiting, but access your Google Keep notes, use Popup for Keep. As the name implies, this extension opens Google Keep in a pop-up window. You also have the option to move it to its own window with a click of the button in the extension toolbar.

4. Category Tabs for Google Keep

6. Google Keep — Full Screen Edit

Another simple yet convenient extension is Google Keep — Full Screen Edit. This is perfect for those situations where you have a lengthy note or one with several images. Once you install it, any time you open a note on the Google Keep website, it will take over the entire browser window. When you finish your note, you still click Done in the bottom corner as you normally do.

7. Movie Links in Google Keep [No Longer Available]

Movie Links in Google Keep is an extension for film fans. If you keep a list of movies in Google Keep, whether it’s those you want to see, plan to share, or simply track, take a look at this tool. It automatically adds links to movies in your list for Google Play, Amazon, Rotten Tomatoes, and Netflix. With the click of any link, you are taken to that particular movie on the corresponding website.

The only catch is that the title of your checklist note must contain the word “movies” within brackets, like so [movies]. I would like to note that the extension can be a bit quirky. So you may have to reopen Google Keep as you add movies to your list because the links do not pop up as you type. But overall, it’s a cool concept for fast access to movie links.

For Firefox Fanatics

When it comes to Mozilla Firefox, you will find very limited add-ons compared to Google Chrome. While this is no surprise, you do still have a few extension options to access Google Keep quickly Why You Should Use Google Keep for Voice Notes Most note-taking apps support voice memos as a way to dictate notes, but there's a good reason why you should prefer to use Google Keep.

8–9. Google Keep [No Longer Available] and GKeep Panel [No Longer Available]

These two Firefox add-ons do basically the same thing, which is to provide you a pop-up window for Google Keep. You will only find slight differences in their toolbars and customization options.

The toolbar for Google Keep lets you open the Keep website in a new tab, create a bug report, check out the FAQs, refresh the page, and pin the panel. However, you can only customize the height and width of the panel.

GKeep Panel has a toolbar with lesser options that allows you to refresh the page, pin the panel, and hide the toolbar. However, you can customize not only the height and width, but also delay the panel load, autohide the toolbar, and adjust the modifiers.

10. Google Keep Notes

Google Keep Notes is a bit different than the other two Firefox add-ons in that it opens within your current window instead of a pop-up. When you click the button in your toolbar, your current window will split with Google Keep Notes on the side. You can choose to have the sidebar on the left or the right, scroll each side separately, and then just click the X to close it.
