Tag all instances of web apps you're developing so you never end up messing with the wrong one.
Are you a web developer? Familiar with working on a large number of projects simultaneously? Surely, you are using versioning to make your life easy in terms of collaboration and deployment, but what about viewing different instances of the same app in your browser… have you ever changed something in the production instead in your local app instance? Ever messed up badly? This convenient extension enables you to register an unlimited number of web applications you’re developing and define different instances with URLs for each one. You can register three different types of web app instances: * Local - most developers use something like "localhost/path-to-app" or define their own paths and create virtual hosts, e.g. “the-app.development.com" * Staging - although most web app development processes support deploying directly to a production server, a lot of them define a staging server that is used for testing and showcasing development changes * Production - this is the live application Once you registered your apps you will see a recognizable letter icon in the URL bar matching the instance type of the page you are currently browsing (L icon for local, S for staging and P for production). You will be able to click on it to see details about the specific app. You are developing on different machines? No problem, your data is synced between browsers when you sign to Chrome with your Google account! What about permissions? 1. Tabs The extension requires access to your tabs to check if you are viewing one of your registered web applications and to provide the icon with information in the URL bar for that particular tab. 2. Storage Local storage is used to store information about web apps and instances you’re using. The data is synced across browsers if you are signed in with your Google account.

First of all, I appreciate the effort. I wanted to do something similar myself many times. I'm very much aware that this is just a first version, but I'm really missing a couple of things. 1. Placeholder hints for instance and host names instead of text "An Instance" that is not very suggestive and also takes time to select and delete. 2. Ability to jump to the same page in another instance. I'd be happy to help should you ever decide to make it open source.

When I hover over letter icon in URL bar it says: ProjectName: undefined (and I have specified name and link for project)
