Incredible Firefox extensions for web developers

Firebug and ySlow are (in our opinion) the two most helpful tools (of all time) created to help web developers. If you don’t already have these Firefox extensions installed – download them now!

ySlow especially gives you great insight into how your Javascript code loads, in what order the Javascript loads and how long the Javascript takes to load.

You will immediately see that Javascript more often than not accounts for 70+ percent of the total KB downloaded by a web browser to render a webpage. Minimize this code NOW and be amazed on how much faster your page loads.
