When I do web development on win10, I use Chrome to preview my work. However, some of my regular extensions can occasionally interfere with my app rendering correctly.

I'd like to be able to open a tab that has only certain extensions: specifically, the few I use for web development.

I know I can open an incognito tab & tell Chrome to permit my developer extensions, but then I have to keep my developer extensions running in regular Chrome, which isn't optimal.

I've taken to using Chrome Canary for development, but I'm not sure when/how its bleeding edge features will affect my app's rendering.

Is there a way to open this sort of tab in vanilla Chrome?

  • Use a separate portable version of chrome with the extensions you need ... – DavidPostill Jul 2 '16 at 22:56
  • Maybe you could modify your extensions to stop working if you are on a certain website? But I think running a separate chrome instance is easier. – jiggunjer Jul 3 '16 at 13:22
  • thanks all. the portable version seems like the lowest-friction solution; very clever. if you want to make it a formal answer I'll accept it, David – Brandon Jul 4 '16 at 19:18
  • Maybe not an only tab but the ability to quickly change "context" and enable/ disable several extensions fast - chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/context/… If this works I can post as an answer – Alex S Jun 1 '17 at 6:56
  • @Brandon - Let me know if this helps – Alex S Jun 1 '17 at 6:56
