Firefox Developers Edition
A browser specifically for developers

This Monday I was recording some videos on Firebug, and so I had to open Firefox to install it. I haven’t used Firefox in a long time because Chrome has been working well for me. But it seems like Firefox is going to suck me back in. I learned of a new Firefox fork called the Firefox Developers Edition. This is an interesting version of Firefox that puts tools useful to developers front and center.

Quote of the Week

The enemy of art is the absence of limitations.
–Orson Welles

So the next time you find yourself complaining about the drawbacks to a certain browser or how annoying it is to have to design for tiny screens consider that without those limitations you can’t create art. And creating something beautiful, something that is art, is a noble goal for any website.
