Quick access to Google services? Bah, I’ve already set up bookmarks for that. But, quick access to documents? Sign me up!

Black menu for Google is a customizable toolbar icon designed to give you quick access to Google services and documents.

I stumbled across it in the Chrome Web Store, and almost went on by. After installing, I thought it was just another launcher, that is, until I clicked on the Documents icon.

And there were my recent Google Docs that I’ve been working on! Very cool, and faster than any bookmark since I can open the document directly from here.

Google services can be added or removed from the menu on the right. Scroll down the list until you see the +Add, and then you can add other Google services to the menu. Services on the menu can be re-arranged by dragging and dropping, and removed.

This is a pretty cool extension, and one I’m going to be adding to my list of favorite Google Chrome extensions.
