    SEOQuake leads to Clipmarks page ;)

    Anyway, great great list, thank you very much! :D

  8. Great list, however I think that Aardvark, Firebug and Web Developer are probably the top 3— in that order. Aardvark especially is much more than “cleaning up for print.” The ability to remove elements in the page is a very minor feature of that plugin. The best part of it in my opinion is the ability to turn it on and find elements and view their source, very handy for dynamic pages. Firebug of course is great for editing CSS, HTML and JavaScript live on a page— as well as watching HTTP headers and JavaScript calls.

  9. Great list. One thing, though–the link to Fireshot is wrong. It should be: I really like it because it allows screenshots of an entire page, not just the area visible on the screen. Thanks again for the list!

  16. A lot of redundancy going on here.

    All the CSS-stuff is done as good as it gets by Firebug and the Webdeveloper, same for the Validation, SourceEditoring etc.
