4 New Chrome extensions I can’t live without now as a Developer

When working as a developer things can get complicated quickly. Endless debugging… Non-stop formatting …Tiresome re-reading.

After working at Amazon and startups I found certain chrome extensions really help simplify complex tasks — helping me save a lot of time and focus on delivering results.

Here are 4 Chrome Extensions that help me daily to hyper-boost my coding:

1. Grepper (StackOverflow built into your Google searches)

I fell in love at first sight with this extension — instead of searching through endless Stackoverflow posts, it pins code snippets at the top of your Google Searches so you can just copy-paste!

2. Colorzilla (Pinch to find the hex colors of any website element)

I use this pretty much daily for the frontend. It lets you quickly find what hex colors are present on a page with the click of a mouse.

3. JSON Viewer (Pretty format those ugly get requests)

This is such a savior if you are having to test any get requests! It pretty prints JSON so that it's not just printed in a super-hard to read one-liner!

4. WhatFont? (Drag over any element to find its font)

Like a font on a website and want to use it on your own? Easy with “WhatFont?”, just select the extension and hover over fonts to see what they are!

Thanks, everyone! Those are my top favourite Chrome Extensions I use daily as a developer to increase my Coding results! If you liked this or find it useful please leave a clap! 👏
