Web Developer Extension - A web page dev toolbox
Authored by: pvera on Oct 20, '04 12:24:40PM

My only beef with this excellent extension is that view source pulls a fresh copy of the page, which means it only works if the page is either static or depends on GET or cookies. If there was a POST, it won't pull the page properly.

That said, this is one of the most useful extensions I have seen so far. I really dig the resize tool because I work off a Powerbook and it keeps me from going insane every time I need to see a test page at a standard resolution like 1024x768.

I agree. I don't understand why so many browsers go out and get a new version of the HTML to display when they already have a copy right there in memory! Plus, as you said, any form data that was used is gone, which really defeats the purpose in many cases. Very, very, very annoying.
