10 Firefox Add-ons for Web Designers

October 22, 2009

I’ve been meaning to mention this useful post—10 Firefox Add-ons for Web Designers—for some time now but never seem to get around to it. Anyway, it’s a short, efficient read, well worth your time. The features added by installing some of these plug-ins more than makes up for the bloated Firefox you’ll end up with (Firefox is almost always my biggest memory hog these days). Of the add-ons mentioned, the following are in my must have list:

Not mentioned in that post are these add-ons, which I rely upon as well:

  • Console, an improved JavaScript error console.
  • YSlow, for analyzing a Web page’s speed (also see [intlink id=”128″ type=”post”]my posts on this[/intlink], if you want).

Plus, unrelated to Web development, but add-ons I use daily:

  • Read It Later, which is a manager for more temporary bookmarks.
  • StumbleUpon, which brings up random Web pages, based upon your preferences.
  • NoScript, for improved security while browsing the Web.

Let me know if there’s something you especially like!
