FireBug : Geek Tool of the Month

Submitted by Leo Klein on Mon, 12/11/06 (2:07pm)

Here's something that just made the life of anyone involved with CSS or Javascript a whole lot easier. FireBug is an "extention" for the Firefox Browser that allows you to see the CSS of a web page and change it in real-time.

The Webdeveloper extention does some of this, but FireBug is far more elaborate and hence more helpful. The Screencast explaining the features talks about FireBug being a help for remembering your own CSS. That's true but I can also imagine it being extremely helpful when trying to figure out a website or template originally done by someone else. In any case, it's a great product for thems that need it. You can download it here... (h/t mezzoblue)
