Firebug 1.5 Updates With New Features, Still A Developer's Dream

Firefox only: If you're a web developer, there's one Firefox extension that you should without question be using, and that's Firebug. The extensive web development toolbox just updated to version 1.5, bringing with it several great new features and bug fixes.

Among all the numerous bug fixes, the new release is also packed with a ton of new features. (Rather than go into them all here, just head to the release notes.) If you do any work with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, code optimisation, speed optimisation, or virtually anything else to do with the front end of websites, Firebug is a must-have extension. Even if you're not doing heavy web design and development, the extension still comes in handy for basic scripting, like writing Greasemonkey scripts, Stylish scripts and the like.

Firebug is a free download, works wherever Firefox does. If you've used Firebug to build something great, or just to make your day-to-day work that much easier, let's hear about it in the comments.
