Web developer toolbar tips

Like many other workers of the web, I’ve been using Firefox’s web developer toolbar for a long time.

Smiley Cat Web Design posts 10 Things You May Not Know About the Web Developer Toolbar. What a great list. Among the features I didn’t know:

  • Edit HTML: I use edit CSS all the time, but I had no idea you could edit the HTML. Sweet!
  • View Color Information: Get a complete list of colors (and their HTML codes) used on the site.
  • Display Element Information: View class, id, attributes, ancestors, position, etc. of any element.
  • And a bonus from the comments (more good tips there), CTRL-SHIFT-Y shows you the styles associated with an element.
