Getting Started in Developing Chrome Extensions

Favourite qoute for the week: πŸ‘‰ Programming is more about the logic than typing the codes.

I read a post discussing why a web developer should develop chrome extensions. It was intriguing to me as developing a chrome extension is no more than the tech stacks which I am so conversant with; HTML CSS and JavaScript.

Introduction

Many who would be reading this article may already have used chrome extensions in one or two ways but may have no idea of it being a chrome extension. A popular chrome extension, for instance, is the adBlocker extension available on the chrome browser.

What is a Chrome extension?

A chrome extension is a small single-purpose software program that runs on the browser to customize the browsing experience.

Chrome extensions are built on web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
