In Detail

With the advent of RIAs (Rich Internet Applications), most web pages are driven by a combination of JavaScript, AJAX, CSS, and so on. It is difficult for front end and web developers to debug and fix issues that crop up on client machines. Firebug helps to solve this; it is a wonderful toolkit to help identify and fix issues that would ordinarily take much longer to find and fix.

Instant Firebug Starter is a practical, hands-on guide that provides you with a number of clear step-by-step exercises to help you take advantage of the full power that Firebug offers. This book will give you a great grounding in using Firebug to debug, fix, and optimize your web pages.

From installation to navigating the various panels to edit, inspect, and modify your webpages, this practical guide will help you through the wilds of Firebug without a single bite.

A step-by-step description of key features is provided with the help of simple and concise examples.
