Today’s bit o’ knowledge: Firefox Web Developer Extension

today i learned about chris pederick’s ultra-handy Web Developer Extension for Firefox. yeah yeah yeah, i know it’s been around for a while, but i never TRIED it until today. i wish i had tried it sooner!

among its many features is the ability to toggle outlines on and off (looking at other sites’ block-level CSS is fun in a voyeuristic way), as well as the ability to disable a site’s CSS, images, javascript, cookies and more! it makes it really easy to examine the nuts-and-bolts of a web page’s structure/design without doing a save-as and opening in an editor like dreamweaver. me likey mucho.
