I have seen many websites with 30-40 activated plugins installed. And most of these installed plugins are there to complete one task. Like, adding Google Analytics to your site, or to add Facebook Pixel or move around a widget. But these plugins also come with code that is not required on the website.
3 developer plugins that open countless customization options.
