Today, I would like to talk about Firefox add-ons for the web development that can extend the browser’s core functionality, because I believe that these add-ons are very important for any web developer and web designer.
Many of these add-ons you already know!
Let's start with the most popular and powerful a wed development tool:
Many people probably know that the latest stable version of Firefox got its own web inspector. Its release was a matter of time, it is potentially very interesting, but now it's not specifically about it. In the 11th version of the browser this inspector will receive an interesting upgrade 3D DOM Inspector. This mode previously could be seen by installing Tilt 3D add-ons. In brief, this thing can visualize the components of the website and view them from different angles, it looks like this:
Firefox is very popular among web developers because of its extensibility through various plug-ins and add-ons that were written by independent developers. The extension idea allowed solving a lot of various tasks directly in the browser without resorting to external tools.
Undoubtedly, you will find the familiar extensions in this list, but a lot of useful extensions always remain aside. So get ready to install a couple more extensions! :)
Built-in developer tools in Firefox
Fist we would like to mention the tools already built into Firefox. This article introduces a collection of development tools in Firefox Aurora 10 that could be found in any modern browser.
Mozilla has tried many approaches and solutions during the interface designing of these tools. Consequently, they got a nice interface that anyone can try by installing Firefox Aurora (Have you installed it yet?)
You will find below a big list of extensions, which is going to be useful for any web developer.
