Owl Reminder can connect your Google Calendar and provide desktop notification for events.

Compared with existing solutions it has several advantages:

1. Instant push notification while most other solutions use infrequent polling which can have long delay.
2. Caches events offline so reminder still works even if there is no internet connection.
3. A simple to-do list kind of UI with snooze and dismiss buttons. People can use it as simple task management tool.
4. Supports rich notification with snooze, location and hangout buttons for extra convenience.

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
