ObservePoint has released its new extension that helps Web developers inspect and troubleshoot Web analytics tags, variables and on-click events using the Chrome Web browser. The ObservePoint Tag Debugger gives detailed tag information that helps users quickly identify website tagging issues and take steps to correct them.

“It’s free for everyone. … The extension is built for Web analysts who are needing to do some quick quality assurance of tags on their site,” Miller explained. “A lot of tools have been offered in the past that do something similar, but ours is the first one for Chrome.”

The ObservePoint Tag Debugger includes the following features:

  •     Adds a tab to the Chrome developer tools that allows users to view detailed reports of tag analytics and other technologies on the Web page being viewed
  •     Displays name, account, category, status, load time and size of each tag
  •     Footer displays a brief summary of data including the total number of tags, tag types and average tag loading time
