Google Chrome is the world’s most popular web browser for desktop and mobile devices, and it’s my web browser of choice for so many reasons. One of them is the ability to add extra functionality using extensions, plugins, and add-ons. That will make my work so much easier, help me boost my productivity, and make the browsing experience more powerful.

For that reason, I am always on the lookout for the best Google Chrome extensions that may come in handy for designers like me and help my workflow.

As a designer, we have to be clever and quick to find a solution for different challenges, so I've created a list of the Chrome extension tools I use on a daily basis. I hope they're as useful to you as they've been to me. Enjoy!

Design tools:

1- What the font:

Have you ever wondered about fonts while browsing on any website? No more wonder. This Google extension is the solution. You just have to hover over the text you want to identify the font used in it, and even the size and family of the font.

It’s my number one favorite because it allows me to discover new fonts and collect design inspiration. A must-have for every designer.

2- The color eyedropper:

Discovered a pretty color on someone else’s website? Find out its HEX code by using Colorzilla or color eyedropper extensions.

As you can assume, dealing with diverse and precise color values will be a frequent occurrence while working with graphic design. Colorzilla and color eyedropper are fantastic tiny Chrome extensions that help you find and identify colors on the web.

3- website palette:

With this free extension, you can grab colors from any website and create entire palettes. This is a must-have tool for both designers and front-end developers.

4- Image downloader:

With a single click, you can search for and download images from the internet!This extension saves time by allowing you to browse pictures on the webpage and filter them by width, height, or URL, among other things.

5- Convertio:

It is a simple method for converting file formats directly within your browser. Replace a.png with a.jpg, or a desktop font with a webfont. You may also convert audio and video files right from your browser extension.

Business tools:

1- Clickup:

ClickUp is a productivity platform that makes your personal and work lives more productive, saving you time.

ClickUp's revolutionary Chrome Extension replaces five separate apps, virtually allowing you to do anything!

2- Loom:

This Google app allows you to record your screen and camera with a single click and share the content with a URL in an instant. It is a more efficient, expressive, and effective way of communicating with your work team or creating your website content.

3- Pinterest save button:

It goes without saying that I adore Pinterest, and it has been a real game-changer for my content, business inspiration, and graphic design journey.

If you install the extension, you'll see a little "pin it" button appear above all the photos on every page you visit, allowing you to pin images from any website straight to your favorite boards, making it easy to find your stored inspiration and ideas later.

Grammarly helps you minimize writing errors and discover the right words to express yourself, from grammar and spelling to style and tone. And because they sync nicely with email, social networking, and other programs, these extensions are ideal for writers, bloggers, and graphic designers.
