Top 5 FireFox addins for web developers
We use FireFox everyday here at Solvd when doing our multi-browser testing of web based systems and super value Breeze CMS websites. Here is our Top 5 Addins.
Here’s our Top-Of-The-Pops rundown of the Top 5, pick of week, best development tools and addins:
5 ) Adblock Plus
Annoyed by all those ads and banners on the internet that often take longer to download than everything else on the page?
Install Ablock-Plus and you get rid of the ads on a page via a downloadable ruleset or add/remove your own rules easily. Save your bandwidth, save your time and save your screen real estate.
Hundreds of scripts, for a wide variety of popular sites, are already available at http://userscripts.org
You can write your own scripts, too. Check out http://wiki.greasespot.net/ – I use it to get rid of the big BBCNews Banner on the BBC news site so it fits on one screen of my netbook.
View HTTP headers of a page and while browsing. Useful when trying to debug caching and signon issues.
The Web Developer extension adds a menu and a toolbar with various web developer tools. The IE version of this (now built into IE8) is very useful too.
