View Rendered Source Chart

Reading the source code from a Web site can be really confusing if you don’t know what you are looking at. Thankfully for those of us who get mixed up with all the code with no fluff, there is the View Rendered Source Chart extension for Firefox.

It allows you to view the source of a Web site with color coded boxes around all the important parts. It might sound a little silly, but it is a great way to clearly see what the code is about and to learn what it does.

LinkChecker

I just launched a new Web site not too long ago. One of the annoyances of setting up a new Web site is checking all the links to make sure they all go somewhere. This Firefox extension takes all that hard work out of the equation. LinkChecker does just what the name implies; it checks links.

Optool – Fast Browser Switching

For those folks out there that are looking for another way to flip between browsers, I introduce you to Optool. I found this tool via Chris, and I do have to say for coming in such a small package (112 KB to be exact) it packs a lot of punch. You can switch between Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera by default.

You can plug your own browser into the mix, if it isn’t one of the big three. It is yet another good way to do a little quick browser switching.

Nightly Tester Tools

Want to try to install those extensions on the new Firefox 2.0 “Bon Echo” release? Chances are that out of the box, Bon Echo won’t work with them. If you really want to see what Firefox “Bon Echo” looks like with some of your favorite extensions, try out the Nightly Tester Tools. This extension adds a few extras useful to those that regularly test nightly builds of Firefox.

duimShow

Are you one of those people who has thirty framed photos on your desk of your family and friends? Well, then you might get a kick out of duimShow. It is a photo slide show Firefox extension that brings viewing random photos right to your browser.
