1. Flash Switcher

It is a must have for Flash Developers, it lets you choose between different versions of flash so you can be sure your code is compatible with all existing versions of Flash.

2. Firebug

Firebug allows you to edit CSS and HTML and any browser side code from within the browser. It’s a great tool to figure out why your webpages are loading slowly, what javascript code is slowing things down, and editing pages within the browser environment.


3. Live HTTP Headers

Live HTTP headers shows you the dialog that happens between the web server and your browser. Figure out why things aren’t redirecting, why search engines aren’t properly indexing your content, and what website is pushing you cookies in realtime.

4. FireShot

Ever want to send screenshots to clients? Or take an image off a page and use it in a mockup? Fireshot lets you take screenshots of entire pages, selected areas, or the current window and export it to an imaging program. Great for quick mockups, client meetings and portfolio pages.


5. Tamper Data

This plugin allows you to modifty GET and POST parameters on any page. Use it to test form processing code, test for security issues and diagnose bugs. It’s only issue is that it won’t work in tandem with Google’s web accelerator.

6. Load Time Analyzer

See how long your web page takes to load for different speeds. Especially useful for developers whose audience may still be using dialup.

7. MeasureIt

Ever one what the exact dimensions are of a piece of web page? Need to create a new graphic but don’t know what size? MeasureIt adds a ruler which lets you measure vertically and horizontally.

8. ColorZilla

It lets you get the RGB colors of any element on a pageusing a drop tool similarly to photoshop. Great when you need to design new graphics on an existing project.

9. Link Checker

To see which links aren’t loading properly or go 404 from any given page.

10. Web Developer

Web Developer is the granddaddy of all Firefox development plugins. Among it’s amazing features: view the CSS property or parent class of any element on a page with a simple click, find broken images, view any form field and much more. You can clear cookies, run a DOM editor, and use all other functions from one simple menu. Once you start using it you will never figure out how you lived without it!

Firefox hotkey plugins

I had used Opera for 3 year

I Post it b4 https://williamtsang.wordpress.com/2008/12/29/i-leave-opera-and-back-to-firefox-today/

I use Opera beacuse I like it’s hotkey “next tag” & “back tag”

Now I change to use firefox browser ( beacuse lot of online service not support Opera )

But I don’t like firefox hotkey , if I want to take actione “next tag” to firefox

I need to push CTRL at left hand , and right hand push “Page Down”

I need to use left and right hand to take this action

When I use Opera , I only use my left hand to push number “2” on keyboard

or “1” to back tag , when I want to find page which I close , I don’t need to find at my history

I only push few or more CTRL + Z , than my closed page will show out

so it’s not so good when I change Firefox browser

But Today , I found a plugins for hotkey , name keyconfig

it’s very important for user ( I think programmer must like this , like me ) to modify hotkey

Now I change setting

NEXT TAG : CTRL + Page Down >>change to>> [2]
BACK TAG : CTRL + Page Up >>change to>> [1]

U can try my hotkey setting ( liek OPERA )
and u can feel the real speed for use your firefox

Today I make a decision , I leave Opera browser and back to Firefox browser

I had use Opera 2 year already , I love his speed , I love his hotkey ( most love key ‘1’ and ‘2’ )

and also love his Ctrl + Z function for re-open closed page

re-open closed page is most important function at my PC

2 years ago , there has no browser have this function ( maybe just I don’t know )

when I try Opera , I love it so much , however there is not so many company E-service support it

like my bank “Hang Seng Bank” , their service not support opera

Yahoo.com.hk same not support Opera

ppshk.com is hong kong online payment website , same not support Opera

I need to change another browser for lot of online service ,

It’s not good for service , but I love it’s hotkey + RSS so much

Untill today , I found firefox has changed ,

it added the hotkey ctrl + shift + T to re-open the closed browser

(but I still love Opera Bookmark search function , it’s more powerful than firefox bookmark search )

so I change all my setting to Firefox 3 again
