10 Useful Chrome Extensions You Will Like

In this article, I will introduce 10 Google Chrome extensions.

1. Daily 2.0 - Source for Busy Developers

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/daily-20-source-for-busy/jlmpjdjjbgclbocgajdjefcidcncaied?hl=en

This extension shows you articles that are related to #webdev.

You can also contribute to Daily 2.0.

2. JSONView

I'm using JSONView to check JSON data. Mostly see API responses.

3. OneTab

OneTab can help us to manage tabs which can also reduce memory usage.

4. OctoLinker

OctoLinker creates links to libs which you are using for your project.
This is very helpful to check a lib quickly.

6. Octotree

7. Refined GitHub

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/refined-github/hlepfoohegkhhmjieoechaddaejaokhf?hl=en

Refined Github can make Github UI more useful. Especially, I like pull request feature.

8. Toggle JavaScript

Toggle JavaScript can switch on/off js without opening settings.

9. GitHub Repository Size

Toby for Chrome from @lyavale95

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/toby-for-chrome/hddnkoipeenegfoeaoibdmnaalmgkpip

This extension helps to manage tabs. However, it has one issue to me since this extension prevents using Daily 2.0 lol

One of my favorites is Caret. A sublime text like clone in a chrome extension? Why yes. Useful in lightweight situations like a travel Chromebook.

Great Suspender is a good one. Especially with Chrome being so RAM hungry. I donated some $ also.

Dunno that I've seen Chrome lose its mind quite the way trying to use gMail on Firefox does. Nothing like trying to open a new tab and the browser saying "nope" – or even just switch to an existing tab – when you've made the mistake of leaving a gMail tab or two sit open for an hour or so.

Also the Toby extension is kinda cool, you can save your access and organize it easily, in dashboard.
For the learning stuff is pretty useful :)
