You're going to need an extension manager to help you manage all of those extensions: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/...

its a great productivity hack too, u can make different profiles for things you do in the browser. For example I have one profile for debugging CSS, and another completely diff one for extensions I use with github.

I dont need either of those available at all times so it's like to be able to toggle those profiles on and off.

Great post!

I was wondering if anyone has suggestions to good full page screenshot tools? My friends recommended me one, but it's off the shelves on the extensions store.

Thanks Mantej : )

Yes, I am using a full page screenshot tool which is called GoFullPage. In my point of view, It is one of the best one out there. Give it a try
