Lets’ check out some of the features with this web developer chrome extension.
Manage Style Sheets
Web Developer Chrome Extension lets you view the CSS for the web page you’re viewing and also lets you edit it to see how it affects your webpage in real-time. It automatically fetches all the style sheets in the website. This lets you choose any style sheet on the website and edit it.
You can manage the forms present in the webpage, lets you quickly display the form details and lets you do other cool things. You can check all the check boxes in the form on the webpage, clear form fields, converts the text boxes into a textarea, display the data in the password fields, enable or disable auto-fill for the forms etc. You can also change the POST to GET or GET to POST in a form. This is a useful feature (matter a fact, all of them are) when you want to text how the webpage works when you change the form submission method to GET or POST.
The Web Developer Chrome extension lets you manage images on the webpage too. You can choose to disable all the images, disable alt attributes, find broken images, hide all the images, outline the images, show the image path etc. These features can be very useful while working with images on the webpage, specially when they’re not loading. You can choose to see the path of the images to see if they’re correct or not. You can choose to disable background images to make the webpage load faster.
Other options available
Apart from all the wonderful features that we discussed above, it also lets you clear the cache, history, display a ruler on the current webpage, make the frame resizable, outline external links, resize the Chrome’s window size etc. The clear cache and history option can be useful when you are working on a webpage and it’s showing you the old cached results. It can quickly get rid of the old data to give you the fresh output of the new page loaded.
Apart from these option, we even have a validator for CSS, HTML, Feed, Links etc. These options are usually available on some of the advanced source code editors however these features are inbuilt into this web developer chrome extension that makes it an excellent tool to work with webpages on the go. You can even validate the external links placed in your webpage to see if it’s linked properly.
