On a warm June evening in 2022, I was sitting with a childhood friend in a rooftop cafe alongside the Yamuna river, which is quite rare in Delhi’s bustling cityscape. Having just resigned from my job two months ago, I wanted to build something with the hope of never returning to a traditional 9-5 🥲.

So, we discussed startups, ideas, and building products. But, truth be told, we felt stuck, out of groundbreaking ideas, or so it seemed. That night, I came home, gave an idea, “an all-in-one browser extension for web development,” a thought, and started coding foolishly without any plan for validation or distribution. That was the night SuperDev Pro began to happen.

The concept was born out of my own frustration. Back in 2021, I was wrestling with 10+ browser extensions to inspect, edit, and refine websites. But all these extensions lacked something, and had some bugs and inconsistent UI. I needed something better, so I decided to built it myself.

Building this extension was a challenging journey, especially as a first-time browser extension developer, and that too while Chrome API was undergoing significant changes. I spent months diving into MDN and Chrome API docs to figure out how browsers work and read about almost everything CSS.

After working on the extension for 3 straight months, 7 days a week, 14 hours a day 😬, I launched it on ProductHunt, completely free. It was a hit, ranking 8th, with 217 upvotes and 50 comments. Within two months, we trended in Japan due to a tweet (100k views) by a prominent handle and gained traction in Korea thanks to a blog post by a well-known website, leading to thousands of installs.

February 1, 2023, marked a significant milestone 🎉: the launch of SuperDev Pro’s paid version. From day one, free users began converting to the paid version. I also launched SuperDev Pro on a few more platforms and built a fantastic website that improved our conversion rate by 4x. It’s been a year since launching the paid version, and the goal of avoiding a traditional 9-5 job has been achieved.

Over the past 19 months, SuperDev Pro evolved from a personal necessity into a robust tool that addresses the daily challenges developers and designers face with over 12,000 lines of code and more than 110 updates. Seeing it used by 2000+ developers with paid users from 28+ countries is incredibly fulfilling.

The extension is a life saver and would improve dramatically production times for developers and coders. I use it daily and purchased the PRO for this reason.

Super user-friendly

Wow, this is a super user-friendly widget for designers! Can’t tell you how much UI/UX designers hate using the browser console.
