Ultimate Salesforce Chrome Extensions 2017
This list of Salesforce chrome extensions is coming from Salesforce Ben’s awesome post here. I have added comments of my own under some extensions. And I have added multilogin app into the list. Although it can’t be quite categorised as an extension, I find it very useful to be viewed as an extension to browsers.
So here comes the list:
Salesforce ORGanizer ★★★★★ (32) Users: 1000+
The ORGanizer Chrome Extension allows you to easily manage multiple Salesforce Logins by adding your frequently used accounts to the app. The app has a number of methods to make it very quick to login, while also providing a few added bonuses.
Quick Login As ★★★★½ (25) Users: 6000+
Quick Login As allows you to easily login as any other user in your Org, by providing you with a quick view page that you can popup anywhere on Salesforce. Perfect for Admins or Consultants that need to test or debug from the perspective of another user.
[Lance’s comment] The issue with almost every Salesforce login extension is, it doesn’t create a new session for each org. As for chrome, you can login with two orgs – normal session and incognito simultaneously, and that’s it. Usually that’s not enough for a Salesforce consultant who is responsible for multiple orgs. As for me, I wouldn’t say that’s not useful. It is. But only to some extend. Personally, I still prefer to use multilogin with a password management app like Last Pass or Keepass.
Force.com Logins ★★★★ (190) Users: 30,000+
This extension manages your salesforce.com login information and lets you quickly login. There is a number of added productivity tools available to make switching between multiple Orgs seamless.
Salesforce Logins ★★★★★ (52) Users: 3,500+
New powerful Salesforce login management extension for Force.com users. It allows you to login using security token without verification code. It stores your credentials on your Google account app storage
and synchronizes it between your devices.
Last Pass ★★★★½ (20,000+) Users: 5.7M+
LastPass is a staple password manager used around the world. It’s very powerful and allows you to manage all your accounts/passwords, Salesforce or not. Great app but does not have specific Salesforce productivity tools.
Multilogin enables you to open different orgs in different sessions, which means you can open multiple orgs simultaneously in chrome – no longer limited to 2. Salesforce developers may soon realise how good it is.
Salesforce Colored Favicons ★★★★★ (30) Users: 5,000+
A simple extension that allows you to change the default Salesforce favicon per server instance. E.g. CS1 = Green NA15 = Red. There is also a setting to ensure Sandboxes stand out.
[Lance’s comment] I have tried this one and pretty love it. The issue with it is under the same instance, e.g. both servers and under CS4. Then they will be of the same color. Other than that, pretty handy one.
Column Copy ★★★½ (88) Users: 18,000+
A powerful extension that allows you to copy HTML tables out from Salesforce (Or anywhere on the web), into a format of your choice such as Excel. Very useful to quickly copy out picklist values, field metadata, and report data.
[Lance’s comment] Very handy extension for me. I would recommend this.
Salesforce Admin Check All ★★★★★ (32) Users: 5,000+
Salesforce Admin Check All is an extension that enhances the Salesforce Setup pages by adding “check all” checkboxes to various checkbox lists. This enhanced functionality helps make some setup tasks more efficient by potentially saving administrators from having to manually check each checkbox in a list individually.
Salesforce ID Paster ★★★★★ (8) Users: 700+

Sandbox Favicon ★★★★★ (45) Users: 5,000+
Adds an “S” to the standard Salesforce.com cloud favicon for all sandbox tabs in a Chrome window.
[Lance’s comment] I personally prefer colored favicon a little bit more. But if you like a simplified version which just distinguishes sandboxes and production orgs, check this out!
Salesforce Hotkeys ★★★★★ (17) Users: 1,400+
Adds hotkeys (keyboard shortcuts) to your salesforce record page. Example – CTRL + E for edit, CTRL + S for save and many more!
[Lance’s comment] If you are a fan to hotkeys, definitely check this out!

Change set with sort, view all, and additional information, such as last modified date. Allows comparison with other orgs.
[Lance’s comment] This helps a lot for preparing change sets. Boostr is another option which you can check it out.

The Salesforce Lightning Inspector opens up and improves your Lightning Component development, giving you access to a wealth of data about your running applications and components.
[Lance’s comment] Although this is only a 3-star, if you are developing lightning components, I don’t see there is any reason you miss this one. For me, it is mandatory for lightning components development.

Productivity tools for Salesforce administrators and developers to inspect data and metadata directly from the Salesforce UI.
Salesforce API Field names ★★★★½ (62) Users:14,600+

A simple app that places a search box above most config menus in Salesforce setup. Allows you to quickly search items to find what you want quickly.
[Lance’s comment] This can be handy. But personally I still prefer the global search in localized storage – i.e. in mavensmate folders.
