7. Session Manager
The Session Manager extension saves all of your currently opened tabs for later perusal.

Because there can never be enough extensions to address browser tab management, TooManyTabs is another must-have. This extension shows a thumbnail of all of the tabs you have open. This comes in handy when you’re operating with so many tabs that you can no longer read the tab titles.
LastPass is a free online password manager and Form Filler that makes your browsing more secure.
For most web designers, fonts are kind of a big deal. Have you ever happened upon a random website and found the perfect font, only to search endless code for answers? If you like things simple, install this font finding extension. Simply hover over a text and find the font in use.
12. Chrome Sniffer
