It’s quite hard these days to figure out what’s wrong with your site at run-time. Things don’t render as you expect them, or something is wrong with headers etc. And the browser’s "View Source" usually just doesn’t do the job. So I thought I make a list of tools that are useful during web development.
- IE Developer Toolbar This is an awesome tool to use. you can fully inspect the DOM, view/modify CSS properties or even outline div elements, images and more. The toolbar works on IE 6 & 7. There is no support for IE 8 since this is already included and enhanced!!
- Fiddler This tool plugs as a proxy in your system settings. It can change your user agent string and display raw HTTP and markup from requests/responses.
The good thing is that they are all free. I hope these will do for now.
