I’m always on the lookout for some useful browser extensions to make my life a little easier. My favourite browser is Chrome because it’s fast, clean and stable. Now that extensions are available, it makes sense to compile a little list of useful ones for the semantic web. There aren’t as many available as for Firefox you’ll notice, but it’s early days! Still, here are my 3 picks.
RDFView is an extension that will find links/references to RDF pages and allow you to open them using an online RDF viewer.
This extension auto-detects Microformats on the page you are reading and upon finding one will display an Microformat icon in the Omnibox, allowing you to click on it to preview the Microformat content. (Only hCard for now)
It’s actually called “Meta SEO Inspector” and “Omiod” is the name of the developer, but I prefer the developer name
It’s made for developers who need to check basic SEO stuff like for example meta tags being in place, but this extension also picks up on XFN tags, Microformats, and more. It flags issues and is mainly SEO oriented.
This is quite a lean offering compared to the Firefox options but at the end of the day you do only need one tool (ideally) that works well for you.
If you know of any others, please share
