Default Handy Firefox/Mozilla extensions for developers

Well, I had to install the latest Mozilla to (hopefully) overcome the weird JPG display problem.

Of course that meant I had to re-install all my extensions as well . The advantage is I got the latest versions of what I use - and found new ones as well.

Handy new ones for developers that I just found (new for me that is; of course the developer toolbar is indispensable, but hardly new):
  • X-Ray: toggle viewing the HTML tag of a page within the page. You can uickly see how a menu is buily, for instance (list, paragraphs, just links, table...); while it breaks the layout (of course) it can be easier than display source or display selected source in some cases
  • IE Tab: Display a page in IE within a tab. Lots of options. Looks very handy for testing though I haven't tried it yet.

More as I find them...

Update: Screenshot of IE Tab in action, showing context menu on a tab, and the toolbar button (available via the View menu) with its tooltip. Note the IE icon in the address bar and on the tab!
