When it comes to Web development there is no equal to the love you get from the Firefox community. I dare you to find a better browser that is suited for editing layouts and getting things just right. The only problem comes in when it comes to making everything look good in Internet Explorer as well. It is like living in a dream, and then waking up to find a nightmare.
No matter how much it scares you that most of the world is still using Internet Explorer, I have found five extensions that will make the pain go away.
Are you upset with the way Digg looks now at version 3? Well, with a little scripting and some CSS skills you can roll yourself back to a more pleasing version. Personally I like the new look, but I have seen others that do not. Here is the fix for your problem.

Ever wanted to edit your CSS files for your Web site while getting a live preview on both Firefox and Internet Explorer? CSSVista is a program that will let you do that all in one application.

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.
