In my last post about 5 Firefox plugin’s any web developer needs I got hammered for not posting FireBug. I admit that FireBug is Amazing and I use it often, but anyone knows FireBug, so posting about it is a bit pointless. My aim was to shed some light on some less known plugins, and therefore today’s post will not include FireBug again :)

lets start then:

  1. Greasemonkey: Gives you the option to change how WebSites look by implying scripts upon them. There are tons of scripts that you can use for a wide variety of sites. This plugin got very good reviews. Check it out here. FireFox Plugins
  2. ColorZilla: Saw a color you liked, get that color’s reading from any point within your browser and past it into another program. You can also save colors to a color palette. ColorZilla allows zooming and measuring distance between two points.

    FireFox Addons
  3. Poster: This one will make interacting with Web Services and Web Resources that accept HttpRequests. You can set the Body and Content Type and view the results receiver by the Web Service. Check it out here.
    FireFox Extentions
  4. JavaScript Debugger: A very Powerful JavaScript Debugging Environment. Very useful for all you JavaScript magicians. Get it here.FireFox JavaScript Addon
  5. X-Ray: Check out all the HTML Tags on the page without using the view source option. Very Handy indeed! No more going back and forth from the WebPage to the source code. Download it here.

Well I hope It will help some of you. I will bee on the lookout for more interesting Plugins.
