Giuseppe from Italy is building extensions. Lesstabs help you taking control of your browser and slowcalhost is helps developers to build faster websites.
I've built two extensions at this point:
lesstabs - closes and archives old inactive tabs automatically after 24h. It then lists them when you open a new tab. If you tend to have too many open tabs because you are afraid to lose things then you might find lesstabs useful.
slowcalhost - it is an extension for web developers. It automatically slows down localhost and aims to encourage devs to build sites and web apps that are fast even on slow devices.
When at the computer, I spend most of my time in a web browser and inevitably stumble upon UX issues, problems and opportunities to provide better experiences. When I build a browser extension I do so to solve a problem that bugs me.
I like to build browser extensions because they are micro products that are well scoped.
I have been thinking to push lesstabs a bit with the goal of trying a freemium model i.e. provide basic functionality to everybody and a paid pro version with other useful features including a tool to listen to articles.
Implementing the core functionality of the extension to the point that is already usable and useful even if not polished. I also love launch days!
I am validating a few product ideas with the goal of making something useful, fun and profitable in a "indie" way.
