by 5 others (via)
# Web Developer - The absolute must-have extension for anyone who builds web sites, no matter how small or few and far between. # MeasureIt - No more eyeballing pixel widths! # ColorZilla - I shudder to think back on the huge PITA of getting hex codes for colors before this lovely extension... taking a screenshot, pasting it into Photoshop, using the eyedropper tool... how much time have I saved because of it?

(With the caveat that it doesn't do me much good on my Mac at work, where I don't have IE/Mac installed.) # Live HTTP Headers - Go along for the ride from user interface to server and back, making all local stops. # EditCSS - Modify currently loaded stylesheets. # Cookie Crumbler - Convenient way to quickly clear cookies from a domain. # Clear Cache Button - Another small convenience that makes a big difference.
