EVM Chains
It might frighten a first-timer and takes some getting used to if you’re not familiar with an EVM block explorer, but very powerful once you understand how to use it.
Etherscan is the gold standard of EVM explorers. The data is as good as what you’d get running your own nodes, but you get a nice GUI and the analytics on top.
Free if you use the website.
