Browser Development and Testing Tools
Want Firebug for IE, Safari, or Opera?
Firebug still reigns supreme (though the Web Developer Toolbar is critical as well for it’s CSS live editing capabilities, in my opinion), but what about when you need Firebug for other browsers? Luckily there are now options that are useful in a pinch.
Our friend Chris Coyer at CSS-Tricks wrote a nice comparison of the available browser development tools. We’ll just quickly add our own additional thoughts below.
Firefox: Firebug isn’t complete without the Web Developers Toolbar
Internet Explorer (still kind of sucks)
Safari’s Web Inspector is actually really neat
Chris makes this pretty clear, but Web Inspector is actually quite neat and very capable. If you have Safari issues that you need to debug, or if you just prefer to work with Safari instead of Firefox, you should definitely play around with this.
