Chrome is the most popular browser in use today, but it’s also got a few drawbacks. One of those drawbacks is that you can’t add extensions to Chrome unless you have Google Play installed on your system. If this sounds like something that would be right up your alley, then keep reading! We’ve rounded up 10 of the best Chrome extensions for web designers here so that you can get started playing around with them immediately.
1. Web Developer
Web Developer is a great extension for web designers because it allows you to view the source code of any page on your site. This means that you can edit the HTML and CSS without leaving Web Designer, which makes it very useful for designers who need to make changes or additions quickly.
Web Developer also has many other features that are helpful to web developers:
The Syntax Highlighter will highlight all instances of HTML tags in any text on your website so that you can see if there are any errors in the markup used by your website (and fix them if needed).
The Live Preview feature lets you see how changes affect certain elements on pages without having to reload them entirely—just click on an element in any text block and see how it looks in real time!
CSSViewer is a simple extension that allows you to view the CSS code of any webpage on your browser. You can also select an element or its children, and then see all their styles. This makes it easy to understand how things work together in the page, without having to open up each style sheet file and read it line by line.
3. Find Font
Find Font a Chrome extension that adds a font preview to your browser’s menu. It allows you to see how each font looks on your design, as well as in different browsers and operating systems.
It also shows all the available sizes for that particular typeface so you can easily choose one or more of them for use in your design.
4. Web Developer Checklist
A web developer checklist is a list of all the things you need to do when doing a website check. This can be anything from checking that your site has the right number of images, fonts and CSS classes, down to actually making sure that everything works in the browser. It’s important that these checks are done before any work begins on your site so there are no surprises later on!
5. Site Palette
Site Palette is a great extension for web designers. It shows the colors used on the webpages, and it also displays what color combination has been chosen most frequently in a specific element (or palette). For example, you can view how many people have chosen blue as their primary color combination on sites like Reddit or Twitter.
6. Window Resizer
If you’re a web designer, Window Resizer is a must-have extension for testing responsive sites. It allows you to resize your browser window by dragging the corners or by using its keyboard shortcuts. You can also use it with Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers (Safari, Opera) that support this feature.
Window Resizer is useful because it makes it easy to see how different designs look across various screen resolutions without having to create multiple versions of your website—a process that could take hours or days depending on how complex your design is!
EditThisCookie is a Chrome extension that allows you to view and modify the cookies on your browser. It also has a feature called “Cookies Viewer” which lets you see what kinds of information is stored in each cookie. This can be useful if you want to delete old cookies or keep track of what kind of information is being stored by using this tool.
How do I use it? First, install EditThisCookie from the Chrome Web Store (or wherever else). Then open up your web browser and click on “Edit This Cookie” in order to begin working with this extension! You should now see something similar looking like this below:
8. Awesome Screenshot & Screen Recorder
Awesome Screenshot & Screen Recorder is a Chrome extension that lets you capture full-page screenshots and video recordings of your screen. You can annotate the images with notes, draw on them, or share them directly to social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. The extension also allows users to upload their screenshots directly to Dropbox or Google Drive (where they’re accessible from any device). This makes it easy for web designers who need access to their work remotely while they’re away from their desktops!
9. Google Mail Checker (by Google)
Google Mail Checker is an extension for Chrome that displays the number of unread emails in your inbox. It shows a badge on the icon of Google Chrome browser, letting you know when there are new messages waiting for you. You can also use this extension to quickly compose new emails and schedule them for later or send them immediately.
You don’t have to go through all your sent messages; just click on this button, which brings up all open tabs and opens them at once so that they’re ready when needed most!
10. JSON Formatter
JSON Formatter is a Chrome extension that helps you to format JSON data in the browser, or on the command line. It can also be used to convert JSON data into various other formats.
The best part about this tool is that it allows for formatting of nested arrays and objects; this means that if your data contains an array or object with sub-arrays/objects within them, then all of those sub-arrays will be formatted as independent elements of their own! This makes it very easy to parse through large amounts of data quickly without having to manually go through each item one by one.
