The Joy of Firebug

By Deane Barker on January 30, 2007

Firebug 1.0: It’s Hot, Baby, Hot!: I agree with Josh — if you have the Web Developer extension, its perfect partner is Firebug. The ability to inspect the CSS of individual elements is a huge help.

If you have anything at all to do with making web pages, you’ve gotta get Firebug. After a year of beta development, developer Joe Hewitt announced the final release of Firebug 1.0 on Wednesday. And friends, it’s a web developer’s dream.

Joseph Scott was saying the same thing last year.

The first time I used FireBug it to see what was happening with XMLHttpRequest calls in AJAX applications. Now I can’t imagine writing JavaScript code without FireBug, and it also catches some CSS errors. The bottom line, if you are doing web development then FireBug is a must have on your list of extensions for Firefox.

Firebug is insanely under-appreciated.
