Which Browser Extensions do Web Developers Use?

NOTE: This is about extensions you use for web development, not typical ones like LastPass, Adblock or Ghostery.

As the developer tools inside browsers have matured and become feature-rich, the reliance on 3rd party extensions to fill the gaps has gone down considerably with most extensions being only needed for specific use cases (e.g.: framework-specific). Since Microsoft announced that Microsoft Edge will eventually get extensions, I wanted to do a quick check to see what extensions are important to web developers. So with that, I ask the question:

“Which DEVELOPER-CENTRIC browser extensions are you using & can’t live without and how frequently do you use them?”

Answer in the comments please.
