You will find millions of Firefox addons on internet and believe me it can be quite a tiresome task to choose among them. However to make your task easy, in this article I am going to share with you the best 5 Firefox Addons that all web designer would love to have.
The ‘Web Developer’ addon is by itself a complete package of massively useful functions. By default the tool bar is displayed at the top of the browser, displaying various menus like CSS, Images, Resize etc.
You can not only inspect CSS styling of any web page, rather you can do much more than that, i.e you can validate web design for W3 compliance, measure design elements on a web page etc. No doubt that with so much functionality, this addon tops the list.
Well as the name suggests, this addon enables you to draw ruler across any web page and measure dimensions of literarily any section of the web page. As a web designer you know the importance of proper sizing of desinging elements and that makes this addon to be a ‘must have’ for any web designer.
With this addon you can also figure out certain CSS styles that are troubling your web design. You can also inspect object model of any web page.
Besides dimensions, the next big issue of any web designer is ‘Color’ and this is what Colorzilla is all about. This addon includes a color picker, with which you can pick any color from the web page, and an eye dropper tool so that you can identify colors used on any web page.
It so happens almost every time that you create a great design but it doesn’t work on IE. So to inspect this, ‘IE Tab’ allows to see how your design looks in Internet Explorer.
Although there many more useful Firefox addons but these were the ones that I think are essential for any web designer.
