10. Tools > Firebug

Firebug

Firefox is a popular browser with developers, partially due to the Firebug addon (available at http://www.getfirebug.com/), which was developed initially by Joe Hewitt and is now maintained by the Mozilla Foundation. This tool has increased the productivity of web developers worldwide by providing insights into code that were never before possible.

Firebug provides a console for logging output, a traversable DOM tree of the current page, style information, the ability to introspect DOM and JavaScript objects, and more. It also includes a profiler and network analyzer, which will be the focus of this section. Firebug is also highly extensible, enabling custom panels to be easily added.
