Browser Window Resizer

Creating designs for the Internet that are customizable to any screen size is one of the basic parts of Web design, but it can still prove to be a difficult task, even for experienced designers. Use Browser Window Resizer in Firefox to experience the ultimate previewing tool. This add-on allows your browser to be resized to any standard resolution (640 x 480, 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1280 x 1024, and 1600 x 1200). Find out instantly if your latest Web design converts to various resolutions as desired.

Chrome Sniffer

Are you often wondering how Web designers create the innovative designs you sometimes see? With Chrome Sniffer, you can view the Javascript and CMS of any website in Google Chrome, allowing you to see the framework and understand how the design works.

Web Developer

This all-in-one Firefox add-on allows Web designers to customize sites to their liking. By using the CSS menu feature, you can view, add to, or edit the style sheets. Additionally, you can edit image displays, customize the HTML, and view any hidden elements within the coding. This feature can be an indispensable tool to designers who enjoy editing sites and viewing the detailed inner-workings of design techniques.

Cloud Save

Fascinated by cloud technology? As a designer, you could benefit from Cloud Save for Chrome by safely compiling your files online. As online security becomes increasingly urgent, Cloud Save helps you save files from any website to cloud-based services such as Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox, and Flickr. Streamline all of your files by securing their safety online.


A handy screen capture tool for designers using Firefox, FireShot gives you capabilities you might not have known existed. Capture entire Web pages, even the parts invisible to browsers, and take advantage of the post-capture options. You can add annotations, save in different file formats, and share through email or the FireShot server. This is a must-have add-on for any online professional hoping to grow their Internet and design capabilities.
