Firefox 0.8 Goodies

Continuing on my goodies theme, here’s some stuff you should check out if you’re using the latest and greatest browser, Firefox 0.8 (notice the new button to the right.) If you’re not using it, and you’re using Internet Explorer or AOL’s browser, by all means get Firefox. Don’t you know that IE/AOL is bad for you?

First off, if you’re a web designer, you should definitely grab the Web Developer extension, which makes your job much easier working on websites. It adds a menu and a toolbar to the browser with various web developer tools — check the link for the full list of features it gives you. After using it, you’ll wonder how you lived without it. It is an invaluable tool, and if you find it to be so too, see if you can donate to the guy who made it to show your appreciation.

Of course, if you haven’t yet, grab the EditCSS extension too, which lets you modify the CSS of any site and see the changes in real-time. Another invaluable tool that helps me design websites.

Second of all, check out the CuteMenus extension, which adds icons for the context menu. Not very useful, by any means, but certainly gives Firefox a new type of feel. You can also check out this tweak that lets you give Firefox’s menus an Outlook XP feel. I’m not too fond of the look, but your preferences may differ.
