FireBug - A great new Firefox Extension for Web Developers...

Posted by Dan on Jan 23, 2006 @ 4:00 PM

I find this nifty Firefox extension over on the Digital Media Minute blog. The FireBug extension is basically a combination of a DOM Inspector, JavaScript Console and XmlHttpRequest packet sniffer—all wrapped up into a Sidebar component.

I haven't played around with it very much yet, but for a "pre-pre-alpha" seems to work very well. I did notice that the keyboard shortcut to show the sidebar, does not hide it if it's already visible. That's the only thing I've found so far.

  • I just unistalled it. It was a cool idea, but I found that it was not that useful. The javascript console is just as good, and i think, easier to read.

    Plus, the FireBug was showing errors produced by my other FireFox extensions... which I thought was strange.
