DbDiagram

https://dbdiagram.io

If you use Lucidchart to genarate your Entity Diagrams you should switch over to this. When you're done with LucidChart, what you have is an image.That work is lost. If you use DbDiagram or equivalent, you just write JSON, which you then can reuse to actually create your fields etc.

QueryBuilder

Doing SOQL queries that can be comre complex than reports, but without the hassle, since... a few years now ? no idea.

Admin Check All

This extension provides 'check all' checkboxes on admin pages.
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.

Windyo's Chrome Extension List for Admins & Consultants

Better Salesforce formula editor

Adds another tab in the standard Formula places where you have better inlline editing and highlighting etc

This extension now requires payment, and honestly isn't super stable always.
We recommend using https://formulon.io to test your Salesforce formulas.


Boostr for Salesforce

Does a few things like add a change set assistant (deactivate that function, change set helper is better), give Field Set API names, allow better search in setup, automatically removes underscores from API names when you type,gives you a Check All options on different parts of the setup, and changes page layout checkboxes so they're all unchecked by default


Deluminate

DARK THEME FOR EVERYTHIN


HTTPS Everywhere

Forces secure connections. Not really Salesforce related but you should install it


LastPass: Free Password Manager

Avoids you using ILOVEBREAD123 as your password for all Salesforce orgs


Linkclump

Allows you to open mulitple tabs by click-dragging accross links. Super useful for things likefield deletions, picklist value deletions, etc.


Momentum

I think It's pretty


Reddit Enhancement Suite

For when you browse /r/Salesforce


Salesforce Admin Check All

Somewhat redundant with Boostr for Salesforce,BUT does it in some places where Boostr doesn't.


Salesforce API Fieldnames

Broken with Lightning. Used to give you API fieldnames on the page layout. still works in classic.

a set of tools to migrate changesets better. Includes search box for components, comparision with prod/other sandbox, test deploys via API, fitlersfor components....


Salesforce Colored Favicons

Don't confuse your orgs

Helps you develop lightning compoennts. Nothing to do with the above extension.


Salesforce Navigator

Broken in Lightning. Allows going to setup parts using the keyboard ctrl shift space and then typing where you want to go.
