The Chrome web browser released their side panel feature in 2022. In May of 2023, they released an API for the side panel that allowed programers to create extremely powerful uses for their sidebar. With the use of extension plugins, you can transform the side panel of your browser. The Dashy extension does just that, and the result is something that we feel drastically enhances the online experience.
What is the Dashy Side Panel?
Dashy is a customizable widget dashboard for web browsers. It takes dozens of apps and productivity tools and places them in one tab on a user-friendly workspace. We took this great product and shrunk it down into a scrollable version that you can take with you anywhere. Essentially, the Dashy Side Panel is a scrollable companion version of Dashy.
In the Dashy Side Panel you still have access to dozens of helpful widgets, including Calendar, To-Do, Stocks, News, Podcasts, and of course our AI chatbot Dashy Chat (powered by Google Bard). You can pin the extension to your browser’s toolbar, and open the side panel with a single click (or using the keyboard shortcuts). This means you can be anywhere on the web, and instantly pull up Dashy to take a quick glance at everything you need to do.
Why use the Dashy Side Panel?
Some folks like to pull up their side panel for brief periods when they need to take a peek at their calendar, notes, or flip on a podcast. Others may prefer to keep their side panel open while they browse the web or complete their work. Leaving it open can be a great way to boost productivity and efficiency. Here’s why the Dashy Side Panel is so helpful:
- All of your productivity widgets available on any web page.
- Dozens of widgets in scrollable form means less open tabs.
- Syncs with your dashboard in real-time.
- Widgets can be reordered for optimal viewing.
- Click on any widget icon in the dock to go to it instantly.
- Open the Dashy Side Panel with a single click.
- Stay on task with your Calendar, To-Do lists, and Reminders always with you.
