Chrome’s extensions allows you to supercharge your web development process in the browser. Here are a few that have proven themselves useful and have become a regular part of my development workflow.
WhatFont — Identify web fonts on hover. Click to see additional details.
Wappalyzer — Detects the technology behind the websites you visit. Cool info such as web frameworks, content management systems, and server software.
VisBug — Open source web design tool. Great for designing, prototyping, modifying, or debugging visual and code problems.
Octotree — Github file tree navigation that makes it easy to move around projects quickly on Github’s website.
SnapFont — Preview Google fonts on a live website. This is great to assess typography options on the fly.
One Click Full Page Screenshot — Simple way to take full length screenshots of websites, annotate, and download them. Useful for collaborating on visual designs and displaying web work.
