How to become a Chrome Extension Developer?

Chrome extensions enable you to extend the capabilities of the Chrome web browser without having to go deeply into native code. That's fantastic because it allows you to create new Chrome extensions using basic technologies that web professionals are quite familiar with - HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you've ever created a web page, you'll be able to make an extension faster than you can eat lunch. The only thing you need to learn is how to extend Chrome's capabilities using some of the JavaScript APIs that Chrome exposes.
Google Chrome extensions are programmes that may be installed in Chrome to modify the browser's behavior. This involves introducing new features to Chrome or changing the program's existing behavior to make it more user-friendly.

Skills required to become a Chrome Extension Developer

The first step is to start learning the fundamental skills that will enable you to acquire a high-paying Chrome Extension developer job. Let's go through everything you should know!

1. Ajax

Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) are a set of technologies used to create online applications. Because brief packets of data are transmitted with the server and web pages are not reloaded each time a user changes an input, when these technologies are combined, web sites appear more responsive. Ajax enables a web application user to interact with a web page without having to reload the page. During website interaction, only page elements reload and refresh. Ajax is made up of the technologies listed below:

  • XHTML and CSS are used to show information.
  • The Document Object Model (DOM) is used for dynamically interacting with and presenting the information displayed.
  • To alter data asynchronously with the web server, use the XML Http Request object.
  • For data transfer and manipulation, XML, HTML, and XSLT are used.
  • JavaScript is used to bind data requests and show information.

2. jQuery UI

jQuery UI is a robust JavaScript library that is developed on top of the jQuery JavaScript framework. UI is an abbreviation for User Interface. It is a collection of jQuery plug-ins that offer new functionality to the jQuery core framework. jQuery UI's plug-ins include interface interactions, effects, animations, widgets, and themes that are developed on top of the jQuery JavaScript Library. It was announced in a blog post on by John Resig in September 2007. The most recent version, 1.10.4, requires jQuery 1.6 or later. The MIT License applies to jQuery UI, which is free and open-source software. Familiarity with jQuery and UI is required to get a good Chrome Extension developer job.


HTML is an abbreviation for Hyper Text Markup Language, which is a programming language used to create web pages and web applications. Let's define Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Web pages. Hyper Text is an abbreviation for "Text inside Text." A hypertext is a text that has a link. You have utilized hypertext when you click on a link that leads you to a new webpage. HyperText is a method of connecting two or more web pages (HTML documents). A markup language is a computer language used to apply style and formatting principles to text documents. Markup language enhances the interactivity and dynamic nature of text. It can convert text into graphics, tables, links, and so forth. A web page is a document that is typically authored in HTML and translated by a web browser. An URL can be used to locate a web page. A static or dynamic Web page can exist. Static web pages may be created entirely with HTML.

4. CSS

CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, is a basic design language designed to make the process of creating web pages presentable easier. CSS is in control of the look and feel of a web page. CSS allows you to change the color of the text, the font style, the spacing between paragraphs, how columns are scaled and laid out, what background pictures or colors are used, layout designs, display variants for different devices and screen sizes, and a multitude of other effects. CSS is simple to learn and understand, but it allows you a lot of control over the appearance of an HTML document. CSS is most typically used in conjunction with the markup languages HTML or XHTML. A deep understanding of both HTML and CSS is required in a Chrome Extension developer job.

5. Node.js

Node.js is a framework for quickly creating fast and scalable network applications that is built on Chrome's JavaScript engine. Node.js has an event-driven, non-blocking I/O architecture, making it lightweight and efficient, making it ideal for data-intensive real-time applications that operate across dispersed devices. Node.js is a cross-platform open-source runtime environment for creating server-side and networking applications. Node.js apps are written in JavaScript and may be executed on OS X, Microsoft Windows, and Linux using the Node.js runtime. Node.js also has a large library of JavaScript modules, which greatly facilitates the creation of web applications using Node.js.

6. JavaScript

JavaScript is a computer programming language that is dynamic. It is lightweight and is most widely used as a component of web pages, where its implementations allow client-side scripts to interact with the user and create dynamic sites. It is an object-oriented programming language that may be interpreted. JavaScript was originally known as Live Script, but Netscape changed its name to JavaScript, probably due to the buzz produced by Java. JavaScript initially appeared in Netscape 2.0 in 1995 under the moniker Live Script. The language's general-purpose core has been integrated in Netscape, Internet Explorer, and other web browsers.
