Around 58% of all internet users use Google Chrome, and it’s what I use everyday for design and development, there are 1000s of available extensions for you to add to your Chrome, no matter what you want to do and use, theres an extension for that.

I’ve put a list together of the 5 I use the most from my day to day working which make my day much easier, quicker and a few for when I’m not working.

Muzli

Muzli Chrome Extensions

Muzli is a design and inspiration resource and their Chrome extension is used when you open a new tab. Once the extension is installed everytime you open a new tab you’ll be greeted by a heavily refreshed block of inspirational content pulled from Dribble, Designer News, Awwwards, Behance, Product Hunt to mention a few. It’s a great source of inspiration when you’re looking for something and even if you’re not.
