New Chrome Add-on Wants You to Stop Apologizing

Sticking with cool technology, a new google chrome app wants you to stop apologizing. The "just not sorry" extension helps people avoid using words and phrases in emails that can make them sound less confident or assertive.

It works by underlining words - like you often see for misspellings, which could possibly undermine the writer's input. Users can hover over the word and see an explanation as to why it could be problematic.

Words and phrases that are flagged as sounding weak include things like "sorry," "actually," and "just."

It was developed by a group of software developers to empower female leaders by communicating more confidently.
