EditThisCookie empowers you to interact with browser cookies within Chrome, including: adding, editing, deleting, searching for, protecting, blocking, and importing/exporting cookies. It’s pretty handy!
The Ghostery extension for Chrome detects trackers, bugs, pixels, and beacons used by the websites you visit, and offers the capability to block scripts, images, and other elements of a website. Just be sure to disable Ghostrank if you don’t want Ghostery to keep tabs on your usage data!
It can be a pain to clear your browser cache just to see a few elements that you’ve changed on your website. With Clear Cache, you can pick and choose which cached elements you want to clear, so you don’t need to deal with the hassle of re-entering passwords, etc.
So you’re developing a responsively designed website. Fantastic! This extension makes it easy to see what it looks like in various screen resolutions on desktops, and mobile devices. It can even emulate user agents!
If you’ve been doing a lot of browsing in Chrome, you know how troubling it can be when you need to quickly pack up and go. With Session Manager, you can save your entire browsing session into lists and access them whenever you’d like! Trust us, this is a must-have extension!
