I’ve always been happy with the built-in Developer tools that come with Google’s Chrome browser. They’re a pretty solid kit and generally comparable to what you can get for add-ons to Mozilla Firefox. However, more than once I’ve been left wishing for some of those Firefox tools…
Today I was skimming over the Google Webmaster blog and found the recent Chrome Extensions for web development article. Bingo, my wishes just came true! There’s now a page of “featured” web development extensions. Clearly I’m a bit behind the times as I had no idea that there were this many extensions out there already.
I’m quite excited to see one of my old Firefox favorites now available for Chrome: Web Developer by Chris Pederick. Oh sure, I’m a fan of Firebug and many other tools, but Web Developer is one that I’ve often used when I need something that works the way I expect.
Also pleased to see extensions for measuring and eyedropper/color picking as well. Great stuff. Quite a few others out there that look worth exploring as well.
Any favorites that I should be sure to check out?
