5 Chrome Extensions for Web Designers & Developers

Extensions can help automate some mundane tasks and improve your workflow. Here’s a list of my 5 most frequently used extensions for web development & design:

What Font

What font gives you an easy way to check the font specifications of any element on a website, very useful when you come across a site you like and you don’t need to hunt through the inspector to find what font they use.


This extension gives you a detailed breakdown of the technology being used for any given website. It detects most frameworks, front and back end as well as server configurations.

The great suspender

If you’re like me, you could have 100 browser tabs open at any given time. This takes a toll on your system ram and CPU, with this extension it automatically suspends the webpage after an allocated amounted of time.

Measure Dimensions

This tool is extremely useful for comparing a design to a website and checking elements are perfectly aligned.

Woo Rank

Gives a short breakdown of essential SEO elements on a page, any time I have completed a client project I run it through this tools just incase I have forgotten anything.
