If you are an avid web-developer like myself and are passionate about making beautiful sites as well as developing amazing script for your stellar site, then I suppose you are using Google Chrome.

Personally I find that from a developers point of view Chrome is by far the best browser, due to its integrated developer rich tools. And just like Firefox, Chrome supports plugins. I have found a few that I think many of you will enjoy:

1.) Chrome Sniffer

Have you ever wondered what technologies, frameworks, and open source apps a website is using? With this tool you can find out immediately what technologies have been used to make that web site.

Get it here: Chrome Sniffer

2.) Web Developer

It has loads of options for examining and understanding web page layouts, including showing block element stacking orders, displaying CSS style information about certain elements, browser cache controlling, and much more.

3.) IE Tab

Troubleshooting in IE's is not a fun ordeal. With IE Tab, you can at least save some time from having to use Internet Explorer (and its limited list of extensions) for debugging rendering issues in your work.
Get it here: IE Tab

4.) Firebug Lite

Although the built-in Developer Tools in Chrome gives you relatively the same features of Firebug, long-time Firebug fans will appreciate this extension for debugging and testing their work in Chrome.

5.) Webpage Screenshot
Web Screenshot

A common task for web designers is taking screen grabs of web pages. With Webpage Screenshot, you can capture an entire web page, even if it spills outside of the browser’s viewport. It gives users the opportunity to resize the window before capturing and saves the screen grab as a PNG file.

Ok, hope that all works ;)
Also hope you guys enjoy.

These are some great extensions! Thanks, Jeremy, for sharing them all.

And, you're definitely right, for a developer I think that Chrome is the best because of it's fast speed and collection of extensions.

Thanks everyone.

Besides great speeds I have found that Chrome as well as Firefox still display sites the most accurately; to they way they are coded, though the new Safari is great on OSX Lion.
