Save keystrokes for commonly typed phrases, emails and more in Chrome OS

Anyone looking to boost productivity while using a Mac has undoubtedly found or been referred to check out the application TextExpander. This awesome tool lets you set up so-called “snippets” that, when typed in the proper way and casing, expand out to larger bits of text. It saves you keystrokes, saves you time and generally boosts productivity.

Since I’ve been using a Chromebook for several months, one of the biggest things I miss from my Mac is TextExpander — but I’ve found a fantastic Chrome extension that at least begins to fill the void left by that utility, and it’s called Auto Text Expander. It’s a free Chrome extension that works perfectly on Chrome OS (or Chrome for the desktop, if you don’t use TextExpander), and it just boosted my productivity on a Chromebook substantially.
