I tried getting tickets other ways first and although I was getting results, they were not results which were good for me. For example, first I went directly to the airlines and checked out flights. That was disastrous. The times, prices, change of planes and so forth were all horrible. Then I went to one of these flight aggregator sites which specializes in finding the best fares. I did no better than I had done with the airlines directly and the prices were still horrible.
This had happened me a few months earlier in buying the flowers. I thought I was being as forward thinking as possible by installing the FTD (florists) app onto my iPad. With this app I was supposed to get fantastic deals plus just have to touch a few keys and be done. Hah! Half an hour later I did not like anything I saw as arrangements plus the costs were atrocious.
Jim and I, as you might expect, couldn't be any more different on this. He uses a Google Chrome Browser with no add ons. Mine has full bells and whistles. I have one extension which removes all of the ads on webpages. I have three custom buttons for my favorite sites. I have a shortcut button to every google service. I have a translate button for foreign languages. And on and on and on. So we are both heavy Google users but I use everything Google has to offer us while he uses the basics. Below are my add ons to the Chrome browser on my toolbar (click to open to larger size).
Additionally, the chrome browser is also available as an app for my ipad and iphone. It also automatically syncs the info from the chrome browser on my Mac Air to my iPhone and iPad. I only use the Chrome browser on my Mac Air. It is my browser in chief on iPhone and iPad. Jim uses it on everything too but the Chrome App is much better on IOS than on android.
