Cortex – Google Chrome extension for social media sharing

Under - Design, Media, Resources, Technology, Usability


Now we can share all those fancy pictures, videos and articles found online in one click to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and to Instapaper. Thanks to Cortex for making a lengthy process 2 second’s job.

Cortex is the fastest way to share links, articles, videos, images, music to your friends and family across the web.

Cortex, developed by Joey Primiani, is a free Google Chrome extension. Having it installed, I had to setup social media sharing in the Cortex settings after which it was pretty easy – click and hold for the menu to appear and zoom … the stuff is already published by the time you open or refresh your Facebook,Twitter or Tumblr page (support is limited to four sites only at this stage).

Cortex reminds me what Bonnier R&D did a while ago in the form of Mag+ – especially the unforgettable menu dial (below). Although the precise functionality was not envisaged in the Mag+ demo for those Facebook and twitter buttons but I believe it could have been the same as Cortex!


Future is all Chrom-atic!

As a designer I don’t like the fact that now I’ll have to worry about one more browser for compatibility but I like Google Chrome! It still has a long way to become a mainstream player but you can bet the future is not that far.

Google puts together few short films on their YouTube channel that are also going to be aired on some TV netwroks. Is the browser war entering into a new era?
