Background: Google Chrome Extensions

One of the upsides to Firefox back in the day was its fantastic extensions, especially web developer favorites Firebug and Colorzilla. And to be honest that's what I used until last year when Google Chrome's fast loading features were just too good to resist.

Package / Cost / Setup

We just use the latest version of Google Chrome - Version 29.0.1547.76 m at the writing of this post.

Bonus Tips:

Chrome Remote Desktop (install). Technically this is an Chrome App and can be accessed from the New Tab screen
I use this to help some of our clients with tricky installs such as the QuickBooks / WP Commerce Integration we knocked out for Eagle View Arms. A free replacement for expensive remote access tools. It's session based, so don't expect to ba able to remote into your own machine like GoToMyPC / Citrix.


Starting this Fall, we'll be sharing our favorite templates, check-lists, tutorials, etc... to our email subscribers. That includes everything from marketing checklists to finance spreadsheets to comprehensive how-to guides for tools such as CutePDF, and sales funnels.

Launches in early October 2013. Sign-up here to be notified of the release date and details.
