As web developers, we rely on a suite of different tools to get our job done effectively. Google Chrome is a big part of that, but hundreds of Chrome Extensions for app development. Here are just a few of my favorites:
Metamask is your best friend in the world of crypto.
Wondershare is fantastic for screen recordings that you can directly save to Google Drive.
JSON Formatter will help you quickly see JSON formatted data from a public API.
Clear Cache enables you to clear all of these specific items: App Cache, Cache, Cache Storage, Cookies, Downloads, File Systems, Form Data, History, Indexed DB, Local Storage, Plugin Data, Passwords, Service Workers, WebSQL.
POSTman is suitable for both Mac and Windows users who are developing apps that connect via server-side APIs.
PAW is still my favorite API tool. I prefer it over POSTman.
User-Agent Switcher is useful when you need to test your application across different browsers to simulate end-users.
Web Developer Toolbar has been around for so long I'd pretty much call this a Legacy Plugin. It's still beneficial.
GoFullPage is great for visual competitive analysis. This is the fastest way to screenshot an entire web page without stitching things together within Adobe Photoshop.
What Font? helps you figure out the name of the font that is inspiring you.
Bypass Paywalls is excellent for researchers needing access to content blocked by content publishers seeking to serve you ads, steal your cookies or tamper with your sessions.
Archive.is ensures that that article you read today is preserved as you once studied it or still around three years later. I use this all the time when I'm building out my Appendix for Product Specs or General Requirements docs.
BuiltWith can help you reverse engineer competitor websites.
Alexa Traffic Rank is not accurate at all, but it's a good enough data point for beginners.
