When it comes to IT projects, it is very common having multiple environments: dev, QA, stage, and production.
All those environments' interfaces are mostly identical, and as a consequence, mistakes may happen very often.
Who had never faced the situation when we intended to do a "little test" thinking it was doing in "dev" and suddenly realized that was in the production environment, and ended up applying a configuration in the wrong environment? After all, screw-ups are easy to happen because the look and feel of those sites are the same except by the discreet URL in the browser address bar.
That is when the Environment Marker Extension comes into play. The Environment Marker is a free and open-source Chrome extension that allows you to configure the URLs of your project's environments and assign a colored "label" on the corner of the browser window, identifying the environment for you.
No more screw-ups in the production environment!
