8 Add-ons in this Collection
Firebug by Joe Hewitt, Jan Odvarko, others
Collector's Note Same as with the Webdeveloper add-on. Without this plugin web development would be back in the middle ages (= early 90's). Great time saver and I'm sure I haven't even used all of its features or plugins!
The Web Developer extension adds various web developer tools to the browser.
Collector's Note The person who wrote this add-on has saved all web professionals from tearing out their hairs and made debugging web development a breeze. Absolute great add-on.
Use tamperdata to view and modify HTTP/HTTPS headers and post parameters...
Collector's Note Nice for changing POST, GET requests and more. Not using it that often, but when you need to change something in a request it's there for you.
Advanced Eyedropper, Color Picker, Gradient Generator and other colorful goodies...
Collector's Note Very nice and focused on 'doing one thing right' kind of plugin. Works great if you need to know what the hex values are for those great background colors of site X.
View HTTP headers of a page and while browsing.
Collector's Note Same as Tamper Data. Don't use it that often, but it's there if you need it!
Dust-Me Selectors is development tool to remove unused CSS selectors.
Collector's Note I looked for a tool to help me clean up old CSS files and this seems to fulfill my wishes this far. Great name for plugin that makes cleaning up almost fun ;)
Screengrab by Andy M
Screengrab! saves webpages as images... but not for new versions of Firefox.
FF changes too fast and I don't have the time to maintain it anymore. Bugs have developed that I am not in a position to investigate.
Therefore, Screengrab is EOL.
Collector's Note Makes it very easy to create a screenshot. Very nice addition to Ubuntu's own screenshot functionality.
Operator leverages microformats and other semantic data that are already available on many web pages to provide new ways to interact with web services.
Collector's Note I needed a tool to validate my use of microformats and stumbled upon Operator. I haven't used it for very long yet, but it does seem to perfectly parse the common microformats such as hcard and hcalendar.
