Google Chrome browser popularity among both development and testing community is common due to the popularity of the browser among Internet users around the world.
While testing, I use most of the extensions on this list as and when required and they are real life-savers.
If you use any particular Google Chrome extension for software testing which is missing on this list, do let me know in the comments section below and I will add it here.
#1. Web Developer – Web Developer Chrome Extension, the official port of Firefox add-on by the same name, provides a plethora of web developer tools in the form of a toolbar. It doesn’t allow all the features of its Firefox counterpart but still is one of the most useful Chrome extension for testing. You can populate forms, control browser cache, manage cookies, inspect and highlight web-elements, title attributes, anchor information etc. on any web page saving a lot of time while testing.
#2. Firebug Lite – Firebug Lite is another chrome extension for software testing which doesn’t replace the options which Chrome Developer Tools provides, but works great with it. It provides a rich visual representation of HTML elements, DOM elements, and Box Model shading. You can use it to inspect HTML elements at the click of a button which helps a great deal while automating your apps.
