Since finally switching to Firefox a couple of months back I have been generally pleased. Currently, I am working on a video displaying, Flash based thing and wanted to see if the .flv files were being cached as I was hoping. Into Documents and Settings/<me>/Application Data/Mozilla etc etc I went only to find that Firefox seems to do a similar thing to Opera and caches stuff in its own format.
Quick search revealed:
Typing about:cache into the address bar displays the current memory and disk cache contents.
Thanks to TwisterMc for this little nugget.
Whilst I am on the Firefox thing, the following extensions turn Firefox into a mean WebUI development machine:
- IE Tab This allows you to host the IE rendering engine in a Firefox tab
- Developer Toolbar This contains goodies too numerous to mention
- FireBug I am new to this one but so far it looks the business. It does all sorts of debugger, dom inspector, CSS shananigans
- Total Validator This validates your mark up
