Fonts Ninja another alternative for what font,
also any plugin that can do json formatting.

Or if you don't want a plugin, there's always format

my fav extension for development:
JSON Formatter

Chrome has window resizer built-in to the dev tools. It's in the top left as "toggle device toolbar".

Some other extensions I would recommend:

  • Quick Javascript Switcher - quickly turn off javascript on annoying webpages
  • Tampermonkey - lets you write quick scripts to modify webpages. For example I modified reddit to present a initial screen to remind me I should avoid goofing off πŸ˜…

Are you sure? Is still available in the chrome web store. And even if I did some research "colorzilla removed" / "colorzilla malicious content"... it doesn't give me anything relevant. Do you have any verified source who proves it? Don't hesitate to send me everything you have, I would not like to leave anything dangerous in this article.
Thanks

I verified that myself just after posting that comment and I am afraid that I can't share any reliable proof at the point.

Having too many extensions doesn't slow the overall computer speed as Chrome runs all these extensions in background?

The entire chrome slows the pc, check the task manager for example (on windows) to see how much. For me just chrome use 4gb of ram (with two users, lots of extensions and lots of tabs). I have a good pc so I can handle this 4gb (I have 16 of ram) but lots of pc have just 4 or 8gb. Even if what takes to most are too much tab opened in the same time, too much extensions can slow the pc, even if chrome is closed.
