Full Web Page Screenshots (♥♥♥♥♥)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't get why some users e.g. scorpivs feel they have to post reviews of other add ons here, so I'm posting this for balance. Fireshot works, Pearl Crescent Page Saver works. Fireshot has a variety of edit features. Pearl Crescent Page Saver only offers crop, and that requires the paid version. If you need to annotate and crop your shots you will need Fireshot. Pearl Crescent will not replace that functionality. 5 stars for this legendary add on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.91). 

Pearl Crescent Page Saver screenshot tool

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Unlike Fireshot this tool does not have edit capabilities to annotate captures, even crop is only available on paid version. Otherwise it seems to work and has command line access, which is great, but no real cause to bad-mouth Fireshot. Unfortunately not all posters have mature perspective.I've given it four stars because although it's good at what it attempts to do, it doesn't measure up with the features when compared to Fireshot. Fireshot deserves five.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.1-signed). 


World's best Web Development Tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's hard to imagine a better web development tool for building web pages than that provided by Firebug.

It provides so much information readily, that even just rollovers provide some classes of information that other (well known) tools just don't (or perhaps even can't).

Firebug improves my productivity in real terms by multiples. I get tired even thinking of how long it would take to achieve detailed CSS and JavaScript developments without it. I don't upgrade my Firefox version until Firebug is available for it.

Firebug has got to be at my top candidate for the world's best Firefox plug-in of all time. I can't help laughing or shaking my head when comparing MSIE web dev tool bar to Firebug. It makes you wonder what that billion dollar world spanning computer enterprise think's they're doing when they can't even come close to even just copying at least a part of what Firebug does, and how well it does it; quickly and smoothly at a click or two. The thought of waiting 30 seconds to go through several pages of approvals and selections just to get a rough source view which can't even track line numbers properly is absolutely NOT what you will get with Firebug. I mean are they trying to support web development or sabotage it? Honestly!

What a useful and diligent work Mark Hewitt and the Firebug developers have contributed to our industry. Thanks very much guys. Credit also to the Firefox developers and contributors for such an excellent platform.
