    Developer Tools

    Firefox Extensions:

    • Firebug (note different versions for FF 2 and 3).
    • Web Developer was the Firebug before there was a Firebug, it still does some things Firebug can't.
    • View Source Chart is a great tool to quickly visualize rendered structure of page. Great for comparing two pages that rendering consistently.

     

    IE Developer Toolbar:

    • Developer Toolbar is nowhere near as nice as Firebug, but take what you can get. Works for IE6 or IE7 but will not work properly on stand-alone versions of the browser.
    • Validators. Many of these are built in to Web Developer (see FF extensions) that make it easier to validate local code.
