More About Server Switcher

Server Switcher allows you to switch between pages on a production website and a development version with a single click. If you develop websites and frequently find yourself wanting to switch to the development/production version of the page you're on, this addon is for you.

It is a port of the excellent Server Switcher addon for Firefox, which I had used for a long time before switching to Chrome. The Firefox addon can be found at

Note about multiple servers - I've had a number of requests in the reviews and bad reviews because I only support two servers per profile. I have no plans to change this - my extension is for a quick switch between live/dev. Adding more servers requires either a dropdown (2 clicks) or multiple icons, neither of which are not what I intended. If you need support for multiple servers per profile, I suggest you try multiswitch, rather than leaving a bad review saying that my extension doesn't do what it's not intended to do!
