WebMonkey’s Five Best Firebug Extensions

Category: Debugging, Plugins

Adam DuVander over at WebMonkey has compiled a list of their five favorite Firebug extensions. The ever-popular YSlow tops the list, but to that they add:

  • Firecookie for easy access to cookie information
  • FirePHP to integrating server-provided PHP debugging information with the Firebug UI
  • Pixel Perfect for overlaying mock-ups on top of the real thing to ensure you’ve got a good implementation
  • Rainbow for JavaScript syntax highlighting

Nice list!

I like Rainbow but it has a serious performance issue.. you’ll probably end up turning it off after a bit.

Oh yeah and YSLOW is conspicuously absent from this list.

firecookie is great :) been using it for a while now. especially helpfull if for some wierd reason your cookie gets deleted o.o u can see when one gets deleted.

@all these commenters. If you RTFA you’ll see YSlow is #1 on the list, like Ben pointed out.

Great links! Thanks for sharing them. I also like GridFox. That’s a nice addon for grid work.

I like the YMail extension which is a YSlow extension for the Firebug extension for Firefox.
