What is Google Services Launcher?

Google Services Launcher is a Chrome extension specially designed for those who frequently use Google services. It allows quick and easy launching of these services, without the need to load the Gmail inbox like the standard launcher. With direct links to each service's URL, it prioritizes user privacy and speed. Additionally, it features sortable icons with their positions remembered using local storage. A unique feature includes the 'more' link scrolling, where users can see more icons by scrolling down.

Summary

I have created this extension because I use a lot of Google services fairly frequently, and wanted to be able to load up each quickly and easily. The launcher that is in Gmail is perfect for this, but you have to have your inbox loaded to be able to use it. This extension is basically a copy of that, however it uses direct links to each service's URL. This means that the extension doesn't need to know anything about the user, and the popup will also appear almost instantly.

The icons are made sortable, and the order will be remembered using local storage.

Tip: Instead of clicking on the 'More' link to show the rest of the icons, you can mouse wheel down, and the rest of the icons will appear. Then when you wish to collapse the panel again, mouse wheel up to make sure the scroll bar is at the top, and the click up once more.
