30+ Chrome Extensions That Make Web Design a Breeze

By Ronald Smith

Check out this curated list of more than 30 Chrome extensions designed specifically to make the lives of web designers and developers easier.

I’m a huge fan of Google Chrome. It’s fast, simple, and reliable – truly a top-notch browser. But as a web designer who heavily relies on add-ons, I initially found Chrome’s simplicity to be a bit limiting. In fact, back in 2008, I temporarily switched to a different browser simply because Chrome lacked add-on support.

Thankfully, Chrome has come a long way since then. Now, there is a flourishing ecosystem of Chrome extensions catering to virtually every need – just like the add-ons available for Firefox. It doesn’t matter if you’re a video creator or a productivity enthusiast; there’s an extension out there tailored for you.

So, I delved into those extensions and based on my personal experience, I’ve selected 40 extensions that can really help web designers. I want to share them with all of you. Check out the list below to spice up your Chrome and increase your productivity.
