I use more than 20 Chrome extensions in my day-to-day as a developer.

They make my life easier and add a lot of value to my life.

Programmers often continue to receive recommendations on different types of tools. But one thing that bothers me is that we keep getting the same tool recommendations.

Here I have compiled a list of seven revolutionary Chrome extensions that only a few people talk about.

1. Wappalyzer

  • With Wappalyzer you can do an analysis of what kind of technologies your competitor’s website is using.
  • Wappalyzer is not like other basic frame detectors. It is capable of analyzing more than a thousand technologies that have more than a dozen subcategories.
  • These categories include various types of programming languages. Also, the payment processor is used by your competitor’s website.
  • Any random frame detector can give you only a broad category, but it won’t give you the details that this extension can give you. Your device can even use this extension even when it is not connected to the Internet.

2. Fake Filler

  • It will generate fake data for you so that you can quickly fill in forms. The false data that is generated is totally random. You do not have to do anything.
  • This extension helps you eliminate the need to manually fill out forms. You need to make zero-configuration adjustments.

3. CSS-Viewer
