Firebug – The Web Development tool/add-on

I use Firefox as my main browser about 99% of the time, and one feature I love is the ability to extend its’ capabilities through the installation of ‘Add-ons’. One add-on that I’ve been using lately that has been a huge time saver for me is Firebug.

Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of web development tools at your fingertips while you browse. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page.

It’s all there, all in your browser. Instant feedback on any changes you make during some CSS tweaking, etc.

Javascript Gallery and Slideshow System

I'm always on the lookup for a slick way to display a series of images within a webpage. Jonathan Schemoul over at JonDesign has released SmoothGallery 2.0, and it looks very slick. Here's a small quote from his site that sums it all up:

"So, what is so cool about it ?

Unlike other systems out there, JonDesign's SmoothGallery is designed from the ground up to be standard compliant: You can feed it from any document, using custom css selectors.

And even better, this solutions is very lightweight: The javascript file is only 24kb."

For now, Jonathan's solution definitely is leaps and bounds ahead of other similar offerings, which either have less features, too many features, or horribly coded.

The CSS Cheat Sheet

Came across this CSS Cheat Sheet ( tonight while looking up some information to edit my stylesheets. I know my friend Scott will be VERY interested in this, unless he turns around at work and says “Time Machine!”, our code-word for situations when one of us already knew about the information in question.

This site also has a few other Cheat Sheets for web developers, such as a MySQL Cheat Sheet, a PHP Cheat Sheet, an RGB Hex Color Chart, and a personal favorite of mine, the mod_rewrite Cheat Sheet.
