1-3 Great Firefox Extensions For Internet Experts
Big Grin 

Like most web-developers or Search Engine Optimization specialists, I use a huge array of tools to get the task done. I take advantage of a combination of web and desktop applications, some purchased and some free. Everybody else I know has downloaded a free copy of Mozilla Firefox, but few recognize that by adding some of the 1,500 free extensions they can get rid of the need for most of the other purposes they currently use. Below are my 13 favorite extensions for internet professionals (in no particular order ):

HTML Validator ( validates webpages to the W3C HTML standards with a simple natural check in-the place of the page if the page validates, a red check if it doesnt, and if there are warnings a yellow exclamation point. It also contains a sophisticated view of source code that allows one to see where problems are within-the code.

FireFTP ( free, safe, cross-platform FTP client that delivers simple and spontaneous access to FTP servers. To check up more, consider checking out: This removes an item of computer software for those who make use of a split up pro-gram for FTP.

Professor X ( lets you view header information without needing to view source code. The site slides down and Professor X demonstrates to you the contents of-the page's head component, including Meta, Script and Style material.

NikkelWHOIS ( see the WHOIS data for just about any page by clicking the button on the top-right of the browser.

IE Tab ( sick of trading between Internet Explorer and Firefox when testing out a web site youre devel-oping? With IE Case you can view Internet Explorer in a Safari Case!

FireBug ( an enhanced debugger unit that allows you to monitor your JavaScript, HTML, CSS and Ajax.

Codetech ( web-page editor that's the feel of Dreamweaver. An extension for anyone doing web design that doesnt need to fork out a hundred or so pounds for Dreamweaver.

Server Switcher ( easily switch between internet sites on your own development and live servers by clicking the switch server icon.

Search Engine Optimisation for Firefox ( brings of use general market trends data directly into Google's and Yahoo!'s search results, including Google PR, Age, links, Alexa rank, WHOIS, and more. Additionally it gives a number of helpful links to-the top of the search pages, including the Overture View Bid device, and Google Trends, Google Traffic Estimator.

Another Window Resizer ( allows you to resize browser window to default screen resolutions. I discovered by browsing Bing.

AdSense Preview ( preview the Google AdSense ads that would seem on that page. This can be incredibly of good use if you are considering putting AdSense on a page and dont wish to go through the problem of signing up for a merchant account and putting the ads up only to find out what type of ads will show.

Display grab ( requires a screenshot of the webpage and saves it being an image file. This saves a lot of time compared to the method I used to use have a screenshot and available Adobe Photoshop to crop the image.

Server Spy ( indicates what brand of HTTP server (Apache, IIS, etc.) goes on the visited site on the lower-right side of the browser..
