Chrome browser is getting its share of fame as more and more people are dwelling towards it. Apart from layman, web developers have also started developing fondness for Chrome. For its riveting speed this browser is crowned a winner unanimously by users and developers. 

Web developers who need to switch between browsers, check the look and feel of the web app would surely like these three extensions suggested by Chrome developers. Let’s have a look at these three chrome extensions:

IE tab: This is a really good example of ideal Chrome extension development. Being web developers, you need to check the web page on all browsers and rather than switching between the browsers, you can actually open Internet Explorer in your Chrome tab. Often you find that you need IE to open few sites and with this add-on you can access IE without moving away from Chrome. 

Snippy: There are times when you see web design which give a WOW feeling or there is something extra ordinary about it. Saving such sites for future use can help you. Snippet developed by Chrome developers let’s you take snippets of such web pages. Starting from capturing content, photos, images or links, it manages all and preserves formatting as well. 

If I were to develop a custom Chrome extension, I would develop something on these lines. This form of Chrome extension development is simple but effective. Very useful this is a good add-on for your Chrome. 

Speed tracer: This Chrome extension comes into picture when your web app gets hiccups! I mean when you find some issues with the performance of web application, Speed Tracer can be of help. It fixes all problems by analyzing metrics and application runs. Being a Chrome baby, it runs on all platforms like Windows and Linux. 

These three extensions by Chrome developers can actually rule out the possibilities of Custom Chrome development if you face performance issues, need IE tab or want to take screen shots of any web pages. So, for all you web developers adding these three to your Chrome browser would make it more smart and working!
