Web Browsers

I had been using Safari for viewing my website development until I found a little add-on for FireFox: FireBug

You should have Safari installed on your Macintosh already, but there are a few other browsers available:

  • FireFox
  • Opera
  • Camino

I had been using Safari for viewing my website development until I found a little add-on for FireFox: FireBug

FireBug is a little development addition which allows you to view much, much more than just code and the final page. If you are adding or using CSS (cascading style sheets) on your pages, you will find exactly which CSS parameter or parameters are styling a particular element of a web page by showing the entire cascading parameters, including showing which has been overwritten. You can quickly select any element of a page, right click selecting Inspect Element, and see everything about that element.

If you need to see how other site pages are created, you can sneak a peak with only one click.

In addition, FireBug displays a little area at the bottom of every page showing any page errors with a red X or no errors with a green check mark.

If you use FireFox and do web design, I strongly suggest using FireFox with FireBug.
