web development toolset

Independent of language and independent of the web framework you use to develop your web application, I can really recommend using Firefox with the “web developer” and “firebug” plugins.
Though these two plugins have a partially overlapping feature set, combined they make it easy to

  • make CSS changes on the fly (for quick testing and prototyping)
  • evaluate scripts on the loaded page
  • see what is loaded as part of the page
  • view the page source, both as loaded and current (influenced by scripts)
  • see how long loading (each part of the document) took
  • investigate cookies and forms
  • look at the DOM
  • and much more…
