Picked up all kinds of groovy info at Webmaster Jam Session ‘08, including the details of one particularly cool tool: Web Developer Extension for Firefox (and Flock and Seamonkey). The developer, Chris Pederick, did a presentation and it blew me away. I had already installed the extension but didn’t know the true power of the tool, alas.
Examples of coolness you can accomplish:
- See web site w/CSS removed,
- alter CSS on the fly,
- view in small screen mode,
- show alt tags,
- remove images,
- ultra-handy ruler/area measure tool,
- validate code (CSS, HTML, etc.),
- get site color scheme in hex values.
And these are just a few of the tools; Chris said in his talk that there are over 100 things you can do. I bet there are even more, if you think about using multiple tools in combination. (Math geeks, go crazy calculating!.)
Anyway, to the point: download it at http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/.
