    Mozilla 0.9rc

    there are some nice features to ff, however i feel that it could do with a few more

    1) In opera (i think), there is an option to vaidate current page which is very handy for us webdev guys
    2) also in opera (definatly) you have mouse gestures, eg if i middle click a link in opens in a background tab

    Are there any other you can think of? In case you were wondering i have just come accross from Opera

    In my FF i have DOM inspector extension, with
    1) PHP fuction
    2) eBay UK
    3) Google (obvs)
    4) Novatech
    5) Play.com
    6) Dictionary.com
    searches, a couple of them i have made myself are there any extension, searches that you use and would recommend, i recomend the Play.com search which i made

    Well I haven't ever played with FireFox extensively so I don't know how the whole extensions thing works but I think that would be a very handy tool. Maybe I should start to get more familiar with FireFox. I like it as a browser but just don't know about allot of the little cool features like what your talking about. Maybe I just found myself a new project. Investigate FireFox.

    Firefox is great if you install some extensions! (is it just me, or is that page not working anymore???) My favorite is the Web Developer Toolbar. It has a bunch of dropdown menus that allow you to disable Cookies, images, Java, Javascript, page colors, referer logging, and styles. Then there's some oterh cool things on there like the validation menu and the outline menu, which allows you to outline certain page elements. There's a helluva lot more on that thing, too!

    **EDIT**
    Either mozdev.org is down or something broke
    You won't be able to get extensions for a while

    Yes Texturizer has been seemingly quirky today. You can still get the extension though directly from the Chris Pederick's (the Web Developer extension creator) site: <http://www.chrispederick.com/work/fi...oper/download/>. And pretty much all other extensions (including the "mouse gesture" one) can be found at <http://www.mozdev.org/>.

    I just installed the Developer extention. This is a wounderful tool. It has all the validating functions that you need for web development! I love it!
