Serious web developers use Firebug

Really, as a serious web developer coding in (X)HTML and CSS you can't really do without the wonderful Firebug extension for Firefox (also works with Flock).

I just switched from Flock to RC1 of Firefox version 3. Wow that thing is fast, rendering, start-up, memory usage; everything got faster and better! But a lot of extensions are not yet ready for FF3, so you will have to do without them or wait until they come available.

The one extension I really need is Firebug. A quick search learned that there is a beta version (1.2) of Firebug available and it works with FF3rc1 ! Though it is still in beta, you have to be a bit careful maybe, but who really cares: you're developing, so your code is not perfect yet either, right ;) ?

Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of web development tools at your fingertips while you browse. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page. Download / install Firebug 1.2beta from official site.
