Top 10 Firefox extensions for web developers

One of the things that make Firefox superior for web development is the great addons. Here are some of my favorites.

  1. Firebug: For many people the reason to use Firefox as primary browser during development. You may also extend it with FireQuery for some cool jQuery features.
  2. Web Developer Toolbar: A golden oldie with a lot of sweet stuff in the toolbox. You may also want XML Developer’s Toolbar and DOM inspector to view and edit live DOM.
  3. HTML Validator: Instant validation is better than sliced bread.
  4. Live HTTP Headers: An easy way to inspect HTTP headers.
  5. YSlow: Performance analyzer.
  6. View Source Chart: A nice improvement to the default source viewer. You may also want Json view for pretty-printing of JSON content.
  7. Dustme: Find unused CSS selectors.
  8. Greasemonkey: Extend the browser by running custom scripts (browse at userscripts.org).
  9. Fangs: Screen reader emulator.
  10. Ubiquity: Dynamic commands.
