Following my article about the top 10 visual studio code plugins and 5 full-stack projects we are now looking at Chrome extensions.

1. Daily.dev

Daily.dev Chrome extension

Daily.dev really became my go-to extension! They provide a default opening tab that shows you the most awesome dev news.
And keep an eye out. You might find one of my articles there.

Install daily.dev

2. WhatRuns

WhatRuns Chrome extension

I'm sure you ever wondered what stack a website was using?
This extension will tell you super quickly what's going on.
It even tells you certain versions.

Install WhatRuns

3. Coil

Coil Chrome extension

Coil is a fantastic extension when it comes to getting paid for viewing content. If you ever found yourself reading awesome content, think about getting a Coil subscription.

Install Coil

4. Grammarly for Chrome

Grammarly Chrome extension

Although this is more of a "writers" extension, I think everyone can benefit from using Grammarly. The extension works great on all kinds of websites.

Install Grammarly for Chrome

5. Web Developer

Web Developer Chrome extension

I think this is my number one used plugin. It has so many great tools built in, including form fill, cookie clearing, image disabling, and many more!

Install Web Developer

6. Tag Assistant (by Google)

Tag Assistant Chrome extension

Tag Assistant is really awesome, and if you are using it, you can't live without this extension. It will show you all tags and when they will be called.

Install Tag Assistant

7. Lorem Ipsum Generator

Lorem Ipsum Chrome extension

We all love Lorem Ipsum, right? This extension will easily provide you with a bunch of copy that you can use as placeholder text.

Install Lorem Ipsum

8. ColorZilla

ColorZilla Chrome extension

Ever needed an exact color from a website? This extension will give you a nice hex color and has a cool picker.
It even copies directly to your clipboard.

Install ColorZilla

9. Window Resizer

Window Resizer Chrome extension

Nowadays, we are working on so many media queries, and it's impossible to "guess" resize them. This tool will give you the exact size of several devices.

Install Window Resizer

10. Lighthouse

Lighthouse Chrome extension

Another great thing that comes in Chrome is Lighthouse. We can use it from the console, but this extension makes it quicker and easier to open a report.

Install Lighthouse

Grammarly is a gamechanger, must-have for anyone writing professional content whether blogs, docs or email.

You inspired me to get back going this morning with a nice and simple post.

Depends on which one indeed, if they keep polling it's annoying.
Some log keys for whatever reason that's super bad.

The ones that only work when you click are the best.
