Like most web developers or SEO professionals, I use a vast array of

Like most web developers or SEO professionals, I use a vast array of
tools to get the job done. I use a combination of desktop and web
applications, some purchased and some free. Everyone I know has
downloaded a free copy of Mozilla Firefox, but few realize that by
installing some of the 1,500 free extensions they can eliminate the need
for most of the other applications they currently use. Below are my 13
favorite extensions for web professionals (in no particular order):

HTML Validator (http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/) – validates web
pages to the W3C HTML standards with a simple green check in the corner
of the page if the page validates, a red check if it doesn’t, and a
yellow exclamation point if there are warnings. It also includes an
enhanced view of source code that allows you to see where errors are
within the code.

FireFTP (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/684/) – free, secure, cross-
platform FTP client that provides easy and intuitive access to FTP
servers. This eliminates a piece of software for those of you who use a
separate program for FTP.

Professor X (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2823/) – lets you view
header information without having to view source code. The page “slides”
down and Professor X shows you the contents of the page's head element,
including Meta, Script and Style content.

NikkelWHOIS (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2646/) –view the WHOIS
information for any page by clicking the button on the top-right of the
browser.

IE Tab (http://ietab.mozdev.org) – sick of swapping between Internet
Explorer and Firefox when testing out a web page you’re developing? With
IE Tab you can view Internet Explorer in a Firefox Tab!
FireBug (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1843/) – an advanced debugger
console that lets you monitor your JavaScript, CSS, HTML and Ajax.

Codetech (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1002/) – web page editor
that has the feel of Dreamweaver. An amazing extension for anyone doing
web design that doesn’t want to fork out a few hundred dollars for
Dreamweaver.

Server Switcher (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2409/) – easily
switch between sites on your development and live servers by clicking the
switch server icon.

SEO for Firefox (http://tools.seobook.com/firefox/seo-for-firefox.html) –
pulls useful market research data right into Google's and Yahoo!'s search
results, including Google PR, Age, links, Alexa rank, WHOIS, and more. It
also adds a few helpful links to the top of the search pages, including
Google Trends, Google Traffic Estimator, and the Overture View Bid tool.

Yet Another Window Resizer (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2498/) –
allows you to resize browser window to default screen resolutions.

AdSense Preview (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2132/) – preview the
Google AdSense ads that would appear on that page. This is incredibly
useful if you are considering putting AdSense on a page and don’t want to
go through the hassle of signing up for an account and putting the ads up
just to see what type of ads will show.

Screen grab (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1146/) – takes a
screenshot of the webpage and saves it as an image file. This saves a ton
of time compared to the method I used to use – take a screenshot and open
Adobe Photoshop to crop the image.

Server Spy (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2036/) – indicates what
brand of HTTP server (Apache, IIS, etc.) runs on the visited site on the
lower-right side of the browser.
