My Two Favourite Firefox Extensions
Usually these posts have a the generic, “10 best…”, “20 most useful…” – that’s not really my style. I wanted to write this because I genuinely love these extensions and as a web developer I use them on a daily basis. Although I don’t love Firefox, I’m just so used to it that it’s become my default. The other major reason I use Firefox happens to be one the extensions that I’m writing this post about; Firebug.

This is a pretty small and insignificant extension, but it still has a purpose and I use it constantly. ColorZilla allows you to use a dropper on any part of a website and get the color values from that sample. It gives you the option to copy out the values in HEX & RGB – both with multiple formats. It might sound like a silly tool, but it certainly beats inspecting the element to go through the CSS output to get the color values; as well, when you want the color from a picture, inspecting it doesn’t help you anyway.
