When you're viewing a list of files on a Mac or PC, right clicking on an item (or group of items) gives you the "Open with" option. Well friends, that same handy shortcut now resides in Google Drive, too. Thanks to a handy Chrome extension, you can fire up Photoshop from Google's cloud-based repository inside the browser -- no need to head elsewhere to get the work session started. Of course, you'll need to have Chrome installed in order to leverage the add-on. And in case you forgot, you don't even have to launch Microsoft Office to edit Drive-stored documents and spreadsheets either.
