Awesome Chrome Extensions For Web Developers

Extensions are extra features and functionality that you can easily add to Google Chrome. By using extensions, you can customize Google Chrome with features you like, while keeping your browser free of things that you don’t use. With Google Chrome extensions, you can add more features to the browser to help you with designing, debugging, and working on websites. Unlike Firefox extensions, Chrome extensions are easier to create, because they’re nothing more than web pages that use Chrome’s APIs. In this post we present you more than 4o useful and awesome Chrome extensions that might be very handy for web developers.
