Following my article about the top 10 visual studio code plugins and 5 full-stack projects we are now looking at Chrome extensions.

1. Chrome extension became my go-to extension! They provide a default opening tab that shows you the most awesome dev news. And keep an eye out. You might find one of my articles there.


2. WhatRuns

WhatRuns Chrome extension

I’m sure you ever wondered what stack a website was using. This extension will tell you super quickly what’s going on. It even tells you specific versions.

3. Coil

Coil Chrome extension

Coil is a fantastic extension for getting paid for viewing content. If you read excellent content, think about getting a Coil subscription.

4. Grammarly for Chrome

Grammarly Chrome extension

Although this is more of a β€œwriters” extension, I think everyone can benefit from using Grammarly. The extension works great on all kinds of websites.

5. Web Developer

Web Developer Chrome extension

I think this is my number one used plugin. It has so many great tools built in, including form fill, cookie clearing, image disabling, and many more!

6. Tag Assistant (by Google)

Tag Assistant Chrome extension

Tag Assistant is fantastic, and if you are using it, you can’t live without this extension. It will show you all tags and when they will be called.

We all love Lorem Ipsum. This extension will quickly provide you with a bunch of copy that you can use as placeholder text.

Ever needed an exact color from a website? This extension will give you a nice hex color and has an excellent picker. It even copies directly to your clipboard.

9. Window Resizer

Window Resizer Chrome extension

Nowadays, we are working on many media queries, and it’s impossible to β€œguess” and resize them. This tool will give you the exact size of several devices.

Another great thing that comes with Chrome is Lighthouse. We can use it from the console, but this extension makes it quicker and easier to open a report.
