Firebug Web Development Addon: The Ultimate Firefox Addon

FirebugFirebug is quite possibly the ultimate web developers tool when it comes to “on the fly” inspection of code. I have been using this amazing Firefox addon for well over a year and during that time, it has not just saved me time, but has helped me become a much better developer.

So what “is” Firebug?

Simply put, it’s an on-the-fly code inspector for CSS, Javascript etc that allows you to view and edit code directly from your Firefox (or Chrome) web browser. See what your code changes do in real-time before going and actually touching the code.

See below for an example of the Firebug interface:
