    Firebug Firefox Extension Review - Use


    (Page 3 of 4 )

     

     If you’re accustomed to complicated programming with HTML and other programs, chances are you’ll find Firebug incredibly easy to figure out and use. There are some options for use that may not be so apparent at first. For example, some may find that using Firebug within the confines of a browser is entirely too constricting. Programmers can now open up a whole new window in which to use Firebug. It simply requires customizing the Firefox toolbars to add on the Firebug button. If you have a second monitor available, as many programmers do, you can work even faster by using Firebug in one window and Firefox in the other.

    Despite being a programmer, sometimes you simply want to browse without thinking of code and errors. Everyone should enjoy surfing the Internet, even those who play an active role in creating the content we take for granted every day. Thankfully, Firebug enables users to keep a list of websites for which it should or should not be enabled. Firebug also allows you to browse in two modes. Either enable Firebug for all websites except those on the “blacklist” or disable Firebug for all websites except those on the “whitelist.”

    Technology should be all about convenience, and Firebug understands this concept. The program has been designed to appear when the F12 button on your keyboard is pushed, which means it should go without saying that the F12 button will become the programmer’s new best friend. Train yourself to hit that key when it’s time to debug and you’ll be well on your way to creating beautifully designed and problem-free web content. For those of you who favor big screens, use Control + F12 to open Firebug in a separate window.
