11 Chrome Extensions To Easily Increase Your Productivity


Recently I did research and asked a couple of web developers from different teams of different companies. I asked for their list of best Chrome extensions used regularly or suggested to upcoming designers and developers in 2021 and 2022.

Also, as you know, Google Chrome is the most used internet browser by users, more than 60%, which is a vast number.

The following Chrome extensions have been tried, tested and the Learn WP Tutorials team thinks it will be a great addition to your list.
