All those who still looking for MacOS X PPC version for FF3 can get it here - http://www.graphicfactory.de/tidy_firefox_osx_ppc.html - it works perfectly on my good old G4.
Great plugin, but I discovered that it crashes Firefox when I search or send e-mail in Gmail. mail.google.com needs to be on the blacklist by default if this behavior isn't fixed soon. Wish I'd known before.
I loved this plugin but it seems they ain't going to release a MacOS X PPC version for FF3, so does anybody know a good replacement?
I use the status bar element of the tool to quickly identify pages requiring further consideration.
The fact I can then view the source with the suspect code highlighted is a further benefit.
THE BEST ADD-ON
If you ever create web content, you want this add-on!
This add-on was amazing in the .7* versions but the 0.8* versions are even better.
I have always used this on Linux - Thanks Marc
I rated this as a three. Although it does do most things right, it still needs some improving...
This is an awesome add-on that has helped encourage me to validate all of my websites that I make from now on.
The only recommendation that I would give is to have it validate the CSS too, as in show the warning symbol if the css is not correct. But the link you have to the w3 css validator helps offset the fact that yours doesn't do it.
Keep up the great work!
A very useful tool. While creating pages it is easy to see where errors were made. I have personally used this tool many times over. Thanks.
Hello! Thank you for this superb add-on. Great work! But this Add-on _is_ too _available_ for operating system LINUX: HTML Validator version 0.7x see http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/download_070.html and HTML Validator version 0.8x see http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/download.html -> both are for LINUX 32 bits and also for LINUX 64 bit platforms. Thank you for correction the information "DoplnÄ�k Html Validator nenÃ pro Linux dostupnÃ½". In case when you have some problems, see Problems/FAQs in homepage HTML Validator.
Great addon. You do not have to browse to http://validator.w3.org any more.
One of my many indispensable web development tools.
This is, by far, one of my favorite addons. I use it ever single day and it's a great learning aid. Thank you Marc!
This is a wonderful tool for web developers. It's by far the most convenient way to test Tidy validation.
Unfortunately, there's still no build compatible with Firefox 3 for Mac OS X.
Brilliant! Consistently helps me ensure proper HTML coding throughout our websites.
Very useful addon
This was awesome for Windows, but just one question. You say it's available for Linux, but I get the text saying 'x addon is not available for Linux'
Is this just because it isn't available for Ubuntu/Debian?
Excellent piece of kit. Makes life much easier.
Only ever had one problem, and that turned out to be my fault for installing the windows version on a Mac (lol)
Superb addon that means that I can check what's valid without having to trek to the W3c website
A great extension in my opinion. Particularly helpful for the novice.
Great tool !!!
This validator gives quite accurate results as W3C one. I really like it, especially because it doesn't rely on 3rd party applications or servers (no upload required). Keep up the good work.
This is a new issue, because google mail just changed something (only in the English version for now). If you are using gmail (set to English) and the extension is enabled, you click on "Sent mail" and Firefox crashes completely under Windows that is.
Otherwise I like the extension.
I\'ve been using an earlier version of this and have absolutely loved it! But yesterday my updater said there was an update available, and I clicked yes. \r\n\r\nBig mistake. The update does not work with PPC Macs. I had to uninstall it. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the previous installer?
I'm giving this a five -- the old version was a 9, but the update doesn't work on my machine.
There is no PPC version in addons.mozilla.org. This is a bug of this site. See here:
Ps: This is not fair to put a 5 if the issue is not created by the extension but this website ! :-)
Wonderfull, it is the same program used in this extension and real w3c online validator !
Firstly, the description above is confused to say the least....
"available on Windows only"
"platforms supported, OS X"
"Just a reminder, this is NOT available on mac OSX"
.....make up your mind mate ;)
Seriously though, this simply means you have to go to the website to install it if you're not a windows user, but then the issue arises that it will NEVER auto-update via the firefox interface.
Secondly, this app has a PPC version, but one that hasn't been updated FOR 3 YEARS. I'm forced to use version 0.7.9.5.
Maybe this is why this validator seems to miss more errors than MOST other firefox add-ons available?
It also has an issue with iFrames that other validators don't have.
Finally, W3C online is much more comprehensive (leading me to believe that all this needs is an up-to-date PPC build or a OS X UB build to bring it back up to spec?).
Either way, currently "Total Validator" is better at detecting issues (and conforms to W3C properly), whereas this one has the better GUI and doesn't send the html data to another site.
overall I'd give it 5/10 as it stands.
If you want a PPC version of the 0.841 validator, a Mac OSX PPC user will have to compile it.
There are compilation instructions here:
Unhappily, all my Mac buddy are on Intel now and are not interested in compiling a PPC version.
