The Best Firefox Plugins

// March 5th, 2009 // No Comments » // Development, Web Development, XHTML

A lot of plugins for firefox are labour and time saving. Some are a godsend. Here is a list of the ones I use a lot.


Firebug is a development tool that you use directly in the browser. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page. It is great for traversing xhtml and css, as well as seeing what is going on when debugging javascript.

Web Developer Toolbar

The web developer toolbar is a very handy tool for interrogating elements within a web page, both xhtml and css. It is great because you can highlight elements, instead of adding border: 1px solid #f00; in the style sheet.


Measureit is a cool tool that lets you draw out a rectangle right on any webpage in order to establish the width and height. It is great as I used to take screenshots, put them in photoshop, then measure the elements in that. This saves tonnes of time.

FireFTP is a free, secure, cross-platform FTP client which is very easy to set up. It is ideal when you want something uploaded fast. It is quite slow when transferring a lot of files however.

View Source Chart 2.7

View Source Chart 2.7 is a really cool plugin for displaying html when you view the source.

WAVE accessibility plugin

The WAVE plugin is really good for accessibility and SEO checking.
