One tool that can help you as a developer

From our code editors to version control systems, as developers we are all surrounded with tools built with the intentions of making our jobs easier.

And I think it is safe to say the more tools you know how to use, the easier and better your life become as a developer.

With that being said, I would like to introduce to you one of the tools I use whenever I code... or google (to be precise). Some of you may already know this while others may not, but I still feel it's worth sharing.

The name of this tool is CodeGrepper.

It is a chrome extension you can install, and once installed, whenever you search online for anything related to programming, if it has an answer to your query, it displays snippets of code or information based on what you have searched. And this information/code snippet is displayed on top of your search result.

It saves me some time whenever I do research because I wouldn't have to sometimes go through a ton of websites to get the information I need.

If it helps me, I feel like it may help you too.

What other tools do you use in your daily life as a developer?
