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".

It's awesome...

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...)
  • Utils to clear cache, session cookies, javascript debugger
  • Helpful outlining: like outlining all block elements
  • Resize the browser window to various resolutions
  • Validation : HTML/XHTML, css, validating of link...
  • Disabling of images, javascript, ...
  • 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?
