For other FireFox fans out there a Mr. Rafe Needleman (sounds pointy) has thrown together a short list of his favorite extensions. Maybe you have heard of them or maybe you haven’t… regardless, if you are a FireFox fan its worth giving a look.
All Web 2.0 sites have one thing in common: they need a Web browser. I use Firefox, and not just because it’s a more secure browser with better user interface features. I use it because it has a fantastic plug-in architecture and a whole community of people who are writing plug-ins for it.
It’s possible to go completely overboard with Firefox plug-ins, but realistically, most people will probably settle on just a few. I’ve picked out a few favorites that I use every day.
He mentions a few of his favorites then gives a breif run down of why he uses it and why he is so fond of it.
I’m a nerd and spend a lot of time doing more work designing the web than I do reading it and over the past couple years I have picked up a few extensions I can offically say I don’t think I could live without.
This one is a must have if you do web design in my book. It gives you access to features, consoles, out lining, blocking, positioning, sizing, link info, etc. This little guy is by far my most widely used and recommended extension.
Another great tool for designers. This tool is a simple click away at all times and provides a nice color dropper to your browser window. Just click on the dropper then hover over and click on the color you want to use. It will provide a nice HEX format (#xxxxxx) and RGB (RGB(244,53,144)) as well.
So there you have it…
Now I wanna know… what Extensions do you use… or like me, can’t live without?
