CSS Live Reloader

CSS Live Reloader is a Firefox extension to ease website CSS development. The extension reloads a page CSS whenever it changes on the server, resulting in something close to live editing of the stylesheet.

So how does this add-on work? Here is more information about it from the developers:

To detect changes to the CSS, the extension relies on a WebSockets daemon running on the same webserver the page originated from. The daemon pushes down notifications whenever it detects changes to the CSS.  Even without a notifier running, the extension behaves normally, albeit without the live component. You may press F9 to request a refresh of the current page CSS. Simple usage requires nothing more than the installation of the extension. Press F9 whenever you wish to reload the page CSS.
