|Web Developer - extension for FireFox|
My #1 tool in developing web pages
| 3:01 am on Jun 17, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Let me preface this post with the fact this sounds like an ad or something: it's not: but I assure you, this tool rocks. On to the meat of this post:
I just downloaded the latest version of Mozilla Firefox, and downloaded as a seperate extension "Web Developer 0.8".
Let me just make a list... but please, just download it and see. You will be using this tool I assure you for a while to come.
A decent summary:
- Dynamic updating of css of a given page
- Images: show their paths, sizes, point out images with no 'alt' attributes, etc.
- All types of page info (cookies, headers, more...)
- Helpful outlining: like outlining all block elements
- Resize the browser window to various resolutions
- Validation : HTML/XHTML, css, validating of link...
- Links to specifications: css1, css2, HTML, XHTML, DOM...
- Manipulating Forms ... various utilities

What a fabulous plugin. This is now my prefered browser - Over Opera - simply becasue of this.
I have spent a couple of hours looking at it and I am quite frankly amazed by it's functionality. From a webdeveloper/designer point of view this has to be the ultimte browser extension. Niceone for pointing it out.

I am actually looking for a composer extension, like that which comes with the Mozilla suite. The normal text editor just doesn't do it. Does such an extension exist? Thanks! Appreciate the input.

|Right, you'll find that when a page is rendered in Standards mode, the "?" button becomes a checkmark instead. Very handy! |
Weird... On my Firefox .9 on Windows 2000, the 'Render Mode' button is always a checkmark - even here!
When I actually click on it, it reports correctly whether the page is rendering in standards or quirks mode. Anyone else get this?

Might be a theme issue. Which theme are you using?

ldupuy - nVu [nvu.com] is the standalone version of composer.
