Similar to web designers or Search Engine Optimisation experts, I use a huge selection of resources to get the job done. I use a variety of desk-top and web applications, some acquired and some free. Everybody I know has downloaded a free copy of Mozilla Firefox, but few understand that by installing a number of the 1,500 free extensions they may get rid of the requirement for the majority of the other applications they currently use. Listed here are my 13 favorite extensions for web specialists (in no particular order ):
HTML Validator (http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/) validates website pages to the W3C HTML standards using a simple green check in the corner of the page if the page validates, a red check if it doesnt, and a yellow exclamation point if there are warnings. In addition it contains an advanced view of source code which allows you to see where problems are within-the code.
FireFTP (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/684/) free, safe, cross-platform FTP client that delivers simple and spontaneous usage of FTP servers. This tasteful https://about.me/neildhillon/ URL has uncountable fresh suggestions for how to study it. This removes a piece of software for those of you who use a separate pro-gram for FTP.
Professor X (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2823/) allows you to view header data without needing to view source code. The page slides down and Professor X demonstrates to you the contents of-the page’s head element, including Meta, Script and Style information.
NikkelWHOIS (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2646/) see the WHOIS information for any page-by clicking the button on the top-right of the browser. My aunt found out about open in a new browser window by searching Google.
IE Tab (http://ietab.mozdev.org) sick of swapping between Firefox and Internet Explorer when trying out a web page youre developing? With IE Tab you will see Web Browser in a Safari Loss!
Codetech (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1002/) web page editor that has the sense of Dreamweaver. An amazing expansion for anyone doing web site design that doesnt wish to pay a couple of hundred dollars for Dreamweaver.
Server Switcher (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2409/) quickly switch between sites on your own development and live machines by pressing the switch server icon.
Search Engine Optimization for Firefox (http://tools.seobook.com/firefox/seo-for-firefox.html) draws of use general market trends information straight into Google’s and Yahoo!’s serp’s, including Google PR, Age, links, Alexa list, WHOIS, and more. It also provides a few valuable links for the the surface of the search pages, including Google Traffic Estimator, Google Trends, and the Overture View Bid tool.
Another Window Resizer (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2498/) enables you to resize browser window to default screen resolutions.
AdSense Preview (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2132/) preview the Google AdSense advertisements that seems on that page. This is extremely useful if you’re considering putting AdSense on a site and dont want to go through the problem of signing up for an account and putting the ads up only to see which kind of ads will show.
Display grab (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1146/) takes a screenshot of the webpage and saves it being an image file. I found out about https://www.about.me/neildhillon/ by searching the Los Angeles Star-Tribune. This saves a huge amount of time compared to the method I used to use have a screenshot and available Adobe Photoshop to crop the image.
Server Spy (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2036/) shows what model of HTTP server (Apache, IIS, etc.) goes on the visited website on the side of the browser..
