We have excellent browsers that increasingly incorporate more extensions, plugins and add-ons.
While Chrome has a set of developer tools built in, you can access a wealth of extra extensions that add valuable functionality.
This post covers 6 of the best Google Chrome extensions for web developers to utilize in their everyday tasks

1. EditThisCookie

EditThisCookie is a cookie manager. You can add, delete, edit, search, protect, and block cookies on any website very easily.
This is one of my favorite chrome extension.

2. postman

Postman is the essential toolchain for API developers to share, test, document and monitor APIs. With postman you can send any type of request like GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, DELETE and much more. If you are an API developer, postman is your true friend.

3. Grammarly for Chrome

Grammarly is AI-powered products help people communicate more effectively. Millions of users rely on Grammarly every day to make their messages, documents, and social media posts clear, mistake-free, and impactful.

4. WhatFont

There are many ways for discovering what particular font is being used on a website, but this extension is perhaps the simplest method.
WhatFont allows developers and designers to identify the fonts being used on a web page. So, if you stumble upon a fancy-looking web font that you want to use in one of your future projects, just hover over it and find out instantly which font it is. WhatFont also detects services used for serving the font. Now supports Typekit and Google Font API.
With WhatFont all you have to do is hover over any HTML text and the extension will let you know the fonts name.

5. Alexa Traffic Rank

Awesome tool to check traffic rank of any website just with one click. It gives you worldwide rank as well as country-specific rank.

6. JSONView

As a developer working with RESTful APIs, reading raw JSON data on a browser can be quite awkward. It is much easier to read JSON in tree-view, rather than in its raw state. The Chrome extension JSONView helps you view JSON documents in the browser.
