A Web Developer\Designer ruler to get pixel dimensions and positioning to measure elements on any web page. 💻
Hi everyone! Page Ruler has been a great tool for the last years, however a few weeks ago the creator of the extension transferred ownership of the extension due to time constraints.
So far good right? NOPE! It turns out that the new owner added mixpanel.js to the extension, this is a analytics and ads tracking script that now also steals passwords and sensitive data.

So I have forked the code and I'm gonna to improve and maintain this new version as this tool has been a must have for me as a web developer, it will be free and I’m setting up the repository on github, I also have updated a few things based on the issues and upgrades that the community had posted on the old extension repository.
I’m very open to hear changes, new features and bugs so we as a community we can continue con the development of this useful tool, I’m gonna port it to firefox too, HOWEVER bear in mind that I got a job, family and life so I’m gonna be setting all the basics in the few days to come, for now this it’s just a very bare bones, uncomplete rebrand of the extension while I set up some roadmap for this project.
You can contact me direclty with bugs, features or questions on: https://github.com/Esteban-Rocha/page-ruler-redux/issues
I’m setting the repository yet as you can clearly see, be patient please.
Other than that you can be sure that Page Ruler Redux will be as always:
Open source - no adware or malware NEVER.
Useful for someone?
If you want to support me you can become a contributor of the repo, submit bugs, enhancements, reviews and run the voice so other people uninstall the malware version.
