  • I would also like to recommend MeasureIt, goes well together with ColorZilla and can be extremely useful.

  • The only other addon I use is FireFTP. It’s nice to have an FTP client right through Firefox, although it’s only present on my laptop.

    I am used to measuring stuff with PicPick Tools. Actually it has color picker as well, I only decided to try ColorZilla because of extras.

    @Angelo

    As for me FTP makes much more sense integrated in file manager, rather than in browser. :)

    @Ishan

    I am historically using Windows Live Writer. Writing posts is another function that has little to do with browser as for me.

    @Babo

    I think YSlow does all of that rather conveniently. On other hand YSlow requires relatively slow page scan so this may be a factor for people who need that info fast.

    Thanks for suggestions! As always even if not a fit for me, there are other readers who might like and need those suggestions more. :)

    View Dependencies is more for superfast check of a pics, css, scripts on a page, known or unknown. Sizes, type, check of stuff missing. Something you do just like that, on the fly. Kind of addictive once you get started. Can’t really get same snappy overview with any other tool though Firebug etc. does much more. Web developers “View Document Size” under Information is pretty much the same, but then you get new tab open. Annoying.

    If you have need to check links try Pinger https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10201 Think it is the best/fastest.

  • @Babo

    For links I prefer periodic complete checks with tools like Link Examiner.

    1+ for Klemen post!

  • Sorry, for double post, just amm… can you tell me why is firebug usefull? I only use it for css and html to check code.
    Why some addons requires this addon?
    Thanks

  • @Free Web Directory

    I hadn’t looked in technicalities, but I think basic idea is that Firebug takes care of parsing and watching CSS+HTML+DOM. So other extensions can hook into that data and don’t need to reimplement it.

  • This html validator addons-http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/ which u posted are very useful.really useful addons.especially this one fix this error.and its good for our work.thanks for sharing

  • @Website designers Chennai

    Yep, that validator rocks. Some people tend to sneeze at striving for valid code but I think it is essential tool to quickly and efficiently debug markup.

  • @arbizz web design chennai

    I think I’ve tried that one but didn’t find it particularly necessary.

    By the way I would appreciate it if you use something more substantial as nickname. :) It isn’t used for link anchor anyway.
