  1. I have nothing to say about ColorZilla.

  2. Windows Resizer
    Every Developer who uses Chrome or Firefox should know that hitting Ctrl + Shift + I opens up he Inspector dock. There's no need for another add-on.

  3. Clear Cache
    In Chrome hit Ctrl + Shift + Del, opens a box where you click your options.

  4. I don't understand this?!

  5. Toggl Track
    I have used this in the past - it is a good tool.

  6. AdBlock
    In addition to this, everyone should also install uBlockOrigin and HTTPS Everywhere.

  7. Wappalyze
    You didn't explain anything about WHY or HOW this addon is useful or beneficial!?


I would hardly call this a list of 7 Best Tools. Some are good and mostly well-known.

I would LOVE to see a list of un-known tools that were just released and with under 1,000 downloads. Those would be interesting to try.

The fact that this post has more likes and bookmarks than actually good articles makes me mad

I don't get the impression there is a genuine person behind this. Responses this user has made to other posts seems to only be links to somewhere else 🤷

This post lakhs so much as sense that it had to have been generated by AI. Two of these points don't even describe the tool and it looks like one of them is saying JS and CSS is a tool.

I never knew CSS and JS were extensions of HTML
