7 useful Chrome extensions for designers

If you are looking for convenient tools for your workflow, congratulations: you have come to the right place. The Dribbble team offers you seven extensions for Chrome. They will help you find fonts and color codes, and even test adaptive projects.

No matter what kind of designer you are, you will definitely need at least one of these applications. Download, check and enjoy!

WhatFont
Did you come across a beautiful font while surfing endlessly, and then spend time searching for the name and details? WhatFont saves a lot of time: you hover the cursor over the font and get information instantly. The extension will give you the font name, family, etc. – up to the hexadecimal code for the text color.

The best part is that WhatFont also provides a link to a downloadable font in Typekit so that you can instantly add it to your font library.

Spectrum
We strive to make the Internet convenient for everyone. To check how people with vision problems see your site, use Spectrum. This tool allows you to instantly test web pages for various types of color vision disorders.

The web page you are currently on will change according to the selected disease. You will literally see it through the eyes of the person with the selected violation.

ColorPick Eyedropper
A very useful pipette tool that we all know and love in any SOFTWARE is now available for the web. ColorPick Eyedropper is extremely useful if you have previously saved images and imported them into the SOFTWARE to select color codes.

Now you can save time by hovering the mouse pointer over any part of the browser to immediately get the hexadecimal code of the desired color.

Sizzy
Gone are the days when you had to test web designs separately for each screen they would be viewed on (iOS, Android, tablets, etc.). With Sizzy, you can view the design on multiple screens at once.

All you have to do is enter the website URL and filter which devices you want to preview the design on.

Corporate Ipsum
Are you the kind of person who gets upset with the same Lorem Ipsum paragraph in drafts? Corporate Ipsum is a convenient (and very interesting) Chrome extension that generates text for you based on the desired number of words. Despite the fact that Corporate Ipsum uses real English words, the text as a whole does not carry much meaning. Although it’s fun!

Just drag the slider inside the extension to the desired number of words, and you will immediately get a paragraph of text. It looks much more natural than your standard Lorem Ipsum. This is extremely useful for text projects.

Dark Reader
If you are one of those designers who likes to create at night, this extension is for you. Dark Reader helps protect your precious designer eyes by including a dark mode for each site you visit.

You can adjust the brightness and contrast to suit yourself. The above shows what the dribbble site looks like with this Chrome extension.

Site Palette
Site Palette is another Chrome extension that helps you define color codes. With it, you can extract the color palette of any website at the click of a button.

You also have the option to share the palette and upload it to Sketch and Adobe programs. Above, you can see how the Meagan Fisher portfolio is parsed into the Site Palette extension.
