Webmasters? Validate Everything!

Total ValidatorFinding yourself in a bind with your web site design? Maybe you just can’t get your CSS to level out with your HTML? If you find yourself in these shoes we talk about, you might need to pick up the Total Validator extension for Firefox.

Perform multiple validations and take screen shots in one go. This 5-in-1 validator works with external, internal, or local web pages using the Total Validator service or local copy of the Pro desktop tool… Provides true HTML validation (HTML 2.0 to XHTML 1.1) using the official DTDs, plus added attribute checking. So you no longer have to put up with the limitations of the W3C validator (no type checking) and tools like HTML Tidy which interpret the standards incorrectly (they don’t use the official DTDs).

For more information on and about the Total Validator make sure you check out and bookmark their web site TotalValidator.com.

Better PDF Downloads in Firefox

I hate it when a PDF opens up inside of my browser, no matter which one I am using. It wastes my time and I would rather not have Adobe get it’s mitts all over my beautiful Firefox interface. Now you can either poke it back with a stick – which is not the easiest thing to do Online – or you can pick up the PDF Download extension fore Firefox. This extension allows to choose if you want to view a PDF file inside the browser (as PDF or HTML), if you want to view it outside Firefox with your default or custom PDF reader, or if you want to download it!

WYSIWYG for Text Areas

True, some Web sites do not give you a really nice text editor to work with. Some of the text input forms on the Web are down-right ugly at times. Don’t you wish you could just take your own HTML editor to any Online form so your written words might look a little nicer? That is what Xinha Here! allows you to do. Think of it as icing on the cake when it comes to editing your Online text.

ViewSourceWith

There hasn’t been anything new added to viewing a Web site’s source code in some time now. Personally I don’t like the viewer that comes built in with Firefox. I would rather use my own note program to view a Web site’s HTML code. What am I to do? I picked up the ViewSourceWith Firefox extension.

PDF Download

I hate the fact that I have no control when it comes to loading PDF files in the browser. That is the reason I picked up the PDF Download Firefox extension. This extension allows to choose if you want to view a PDF file inside the browser (as PDF or HTML), if you want to view it outside Firefox with your default or custom PDF reader, or if you want to download it! This is how PDF controls should have been done in the first place.

HTML Validator

I will not lie to you, no matter how much hate mail I get for saying what I am about to say. I don’t often check to see if my Web sites are using “valid HTML”. Now that I have confessed my sin, I am ready to start validating like everybody else. The HTML Validator extension for Firefox is what is going to help me make the change.

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.
