#15: Introduction to Firebug

Firebug is an essential Firefox extension for web designers and developers. You are able to quickly target any element on a page to see the markup, the CSS, the layout, and the DOM in an instant. Not only can you see all of this juicy information, you can edit and see the results directly in the browser window. This makes Firebug the go-to tool for debugging CSS trouble. Also indispensable for JavaScript programmers.

    HAHA WOW. I have had this tool on my firefox but havent really played around with it because i didnt know how to use it. Creating my own css from scratch is still a little out of my skill base range, but what i am trying to do is alter themes to make them my own and this tool is really really going to help me out so much. I hated having to look all over the place to find a snipet of code that i had no idea what it did. Now i know!! Super excited to start using this more. Love the blog please keep it going.
