Salesforce.com Sandbox Favicon Extension
This is one of my favorite extensions. Have you ever been logged into a sandbox and production at the same time? Of course you have! This makes it even easier to distinguish between the two environments. This simple extension will add a small
S over the cloud Favicon in your browser’s tab. It makes switching between tabs incredibly simple.
Keeping with that idea that you are constantly switching between environments, wouldn’t it be nice to have all of those logins stored in an easy to use location? Well, this extension will allow you to save and group together all of your Salesforce login info and make logging into an org a single click process.
Salesforce.com Enhanced Formula Editor
This extension is incredibly useful for anyone who has even written even a semi-complicated formula. This extension will change your formula editor to have syntax highlighting, tabbing, parenthesis matching, and even find and replace. With that said, there are two small downsides:
- The Insert Field functionality will no longer work
- Tabs count as spaces, so you could run into character limits on large formula
Force.com Utility Belt
The Force.com Utility Belt is jam packed with different Salesforce functionality. Using the Force.com Utility Belt, you can quickly access Salesforce documentation, search against specific Salesforce sites, and even converts IDs from 15 digits to 18 digits.
Salesforce.com Quick Login As
The Salesforce.com Quick Login As extension will allow a developer or an administrator even easier access to logging as as different users. This extension will display a popup of the user list on any given page within Salesforce and allow you to quickly login as any user you specify, keeping you on the currently viewed page. When you log out as that user, you also stay on the same page.
Salesforce.com Id Clipper
Salesforce.com Id Clipper makes it easy to copy a record’s Id to the clipboard. All you need to do is be on a record with a Salesforce Id in the URL bar and click a small icon to copy the Id.
Salesforce Navigator is an awesome extension that is still relatively new. Matt Lacey has a very good article on its capabilities, but essentially it will allow you to search for any screen you can find in the admin from any page. On top of that, it is even looping in the Tooling API to allow cool things like adding custom fields on the fly.
Grey Tab is a neat extension that provides useful information about the current state of the page at the developer’s fingertips. It can provide the developer with the ability to see certain session information (User Id, Org Id, Session Id, etc.) as well as certain record details using sObject Describe. An interesting aspect of Grey Tab is that it is open source so you can customize it yourself if you would like to contribute as well.
Developed by Harshit Pandey, this simple application makes transitioning between Salesforce1 and your normal Salesforce instance a single button click.
Also developed by Harshit Pandey, this application provides convenient functionality for turning off Salesforce’s Development Mode. This can make life much easier when working with Google Chrome’s Developer Tools.
As it turns out, Google Chrome isn’t just the best browser on the web, it is the best browser for Salesforce too! There are a few more plugins I haven’t discussed here, but you can check them out on the Chrome Web Store. Also, if you truly want to represent your love for everything Salesforce, you can even skin your browser with the unofficial Salesforce theme! Enjoy!
