Google Voice Chome Extension and React Development

Google Voice is a fantastic free service for VOIP via the browser, however the extension isn't compatible with local React development and returns an "Uncaught (in promise) Error: Could not establish connection.  Receiving end does not exist".   

Solutions are to use incognito sessions, disable the extension during development, or a different browser.  I set Chrome as my default over other browsers for the various google app integrations.  So for now, it's a minor annoyance to have to perform the manual switching or configuration each time I want to launch a development session.

There is one possibility of diving into the node packages such as react-dev-utils that's using html-webpack-plugin  and trying to provide a  method for launching the browser incognito when using the command npm start.
