    Firebug Firefox Extension Review

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Coding for the web is no easy task and many are of the opinion that it should be left to the professionals. Well, guess what? Sometimes even the professionals find coding to be incredibly difficult and frustrating.

You can open Firebug in a separate window or as a bar at the bottom of your browser. The program also gives you excellent control over which websites you want to enable it for. Letís take a look at some of the program's specific features...
