The 15 Best Chrome Extensions for Programmers and Developers
By ritexz Posted on
If you’re a programmer who doesn’t use Chrome, you’re in the minority.
There are so many reasons to prefer this browser for programming, such as Google’s massive influence on the direction of the web, the built-in features that make development less frustrating, and the sheer number of available extensions. computer science computer science computer science computer science computer science
That last point is a crucial one. As of February 2018, Chrome holds over 60 percent market share on desktops—it’s no wonder that most extension creators focus their efforts on Chrome first. That said, here are the best Chrome extensions you should be using if you’re a developer of any kind, but especially a web developer.
General Development Extensions
1. Session Buddy
Chrome has an awesome feature called custom user profiles that lets you create separate sets of bookmarks, settings, tabs, histories, etc. You should definitely set one up specifically for programming, if you haven’t already.
But Session Buddy takes it one step further, allowing you to save specific “tab sessions” and switch between them at will, which comes in handy when you’re working on multiple projects. computer science computer science computer science computer science computer science
iMacros is an extension that lets you automate repetitive tasks. You can “record” certain actions (e.g. mouse clicks and key presses), save them as macros, then run them whenever you want with a single click. It saves so much time when filling forms, testing changes, etc. For macros outside of Chrome, we recommend AutoHotkey scripts.
