Last time I looked at Microsoft Store’s extension offerings, it was a forlorn and desolate place. Not a lot available, much to my ever loving annoyance. I like playing around with extensions, even silly useless ones. Today I decided to see if there’s been an increase and what do you know, the offerings have grown to 42! Still not a lot of choice, but a marked improvement since Christmas.
I decided to test drive an extension called Web Developer Checklist by Mads Kristensen. It turned out to be anything but silly and a potential boon to web designers.
It’s the only offering in the Microsoft Store by the developer, and is available also for Chrome and Firefox. It’s a kickass little extension designed to help web developers check that they are using best practices on their site. Everything is compact and easy to use with a lot of helpful information, quickly accessible with a mouse click.
My sole complaint is a minor, quirky one. The screen on the left is from Firefox and the one on the right is from Edge:
It took me a few minutes to figure out the ace was a misinterpreted check mark. Like I said, very minor issue. Other than that, there are no real issues. I was interested in seeing it snagged a few different issues with each browser. That’ll be a project to look at tomorrow.
