6 Chrome Extensions Every Designer Needs

Add to Chrome!

I’ve tried lots of internet browsers, from Brave, Vivaldi to Opera, but I always go back to Chrome and extensions are one of the biggest reasons. Here are six must have Chrome extensions for designers, developers and product managers alike.

#1 WhatFont

Ever go on a site and wonder what font are they using? Now you can find out in a few clicks. I’ve tried a few font finding apps, but I always go back to WhatFont, it’s simple, dependable and provides more information (font, family, style, weight, size, line height, and color). Add to Chrome

#2 Awesome Screenshot

Awesome Screenshot isn’t the newest to the screenshot game, but it does have some great features. Awesome Screenshot has the basic visible part of the page, the entire page, and select area but they also have the not so standard desktop, select a local image and the NEW feature record screen. Other great features include: annotations, Blur sensitive information, comment, and copy to clipboard. Add to Chrome

#3 Dimensions

Checking padding, margins, and general size on the web can be annoying. Stop wasting time in inspect and use the Dimension plugin. Add to Chrome

#4 Resize Window

Resize window is an excellent way to check a pages responsiveness and save different browser sizes. Add to Chrome

#5 Muzli 2

Design inspiration, news, and all things fresh and trending. I’ve tried a few different new tab extensions, and this is by far the best for design inspiration. Muzli gathers the best designs from the best feeds: Vlogs, Dribbble, Designer News, Awwwards, InVision Blog, Smashing Magazine, CSS Winner, Abduzeedo, Behance, Design Milk, Techcrunch, Product Hunt, The Next Web, Fubiz, Sidebar, and Muzli Blog. Add to Chrome

#6 Eye Dropper

Ever surf the web and wonder what that unusual color is? Now you can find out. Eye Dropper allows you to use the eye dropper tool right in chrome to get HEX, RGB and #HSL colors. Add to Chrome
