Firefox Developer Tools

Posted in Browser at Thursday, 29 December 2005 00:27 W. Europe Standard Time

There's a good article on rapid web development using Firefox posted on the Vertigo Software Blogs. I especially liked the slides linked at the bottom of the post. I've installed all plugins that appeared useful in the first place.

I've been using the developer tools (DOM Inspector, JavaScript Console) included in the Firefox redist for some years now and have always been blown away by their usefulness. Currently there are neither open tags to close nor quirks to eliminate for me, set aside that there have been some annoyances with the layout of this page. Let me see how much additional value the tools bring when I encounter the next problem. According to Murphy's Laws I will!

Unfortunately there's nothing that flexible and powerful for Internet Explorer. The IE DevToolbar tries to mimic the functionality of the Firefox DOM Inspector, but is far from being perfect. Nevertheless, better that nothing.

Keep your ASP.NET BrowserCaps Up to Date

Posted in ASP.NET | Browser at Sunday, 23 October 2005 22:09 W. Europe Daylight Time

There's a neat project on The Code Project that will issue updates for the browserCaps section of the machine.config file which is located in %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\<version number>\CONFIG. Note that this applies only to ASP.NET web sites, IIS has another file (%windir%\system32\inetsrv\browscap.ini) that will be used for non-ASP.NET web sites.

BrowserCaps are used to determine which browser type visits a web site. ASP.NET will decide upon this information how to render content for specific browsers, versions and platforms.

There's also a write-up on how to use various ASP.NET configuration files and settings.
