After installing the new Firefox 0.9 for Solaris, I thought I'd mess around with adding some of the extensions that are available.
Boy, am I glad I did! For anyone that works on web pages, the Web Developer extension is a MUST! For those still on Firefox 0.8, the extension is also available.
Extension features include:
- CSS - add, edit, view,etc.
- Forms - convert GET to POST and vice versa
- Images - show paths, alt, etc.
- Information - view cookies, headers, etc.
- Miscellaneous - show comments, clear auth, etc.
- Outline - display block level elements, deprecated elements, tables, etc.
- Resize - change display size
- View Source - um, view source. :-)
- Options - set validators, hot keys, etc.
Such a handy tool, I wish this had been a default preference for all browsers back during the browser wars! It would have made my life easier on a number of occasions...
I'll have to see what it can do with XML content, and also look for XML specific extensions.
