Every designer’s best friend

Alex Christie

When it comes to designing and building websites, Firefox is every designer’s best friend. With its multitude of essential tools provided via the developer tools add-on, it has enabled designers to build websites more quickly. Primarily due to the fact that it allows you to see clearly how the browser is interpreting your code.

Sadly there appears to be no such equivalent for I.E. (although there may be something similar out there – which I haven’t found or heard about). So for I.E. it’s back to adding the a red border around specific elements, to try and figure out how I.E. is interpreting your code.

Hopefully, Microsoft will someday provide developer tools for I.E. and save us designers from all the heartache, when you just can’t figure out what is going on with I.E.
