A browser designed for the web developers
Mozilla has released a new version of Firefox that is aimed towards web developers called Firefox Developer Edition.
Apart from the different, darker, theme that can be changed if you so desire, Firefox Developer Edition comes with various new features that can be very helpful to web developers and Firefox extension/OS applications developers.
A few examples are:
Responsive Design View: A feature that allows you to test and see how your websites or web applications will look under different resolutions. Moreover, Firefox Developer Edition comes with a feature called WebIDE. WebIDE enables Firefox OS application developers to write, run and test their applications within the browser itself using simulation. The nice part about this feature is that is allows you to target specific versions of Firefox OS which means you can now test how your application will behave under different versions of Firefox OS with ease.
Valence: Allows you to test your applications across multiple browsers and devices.
Web Audio Editor: Inspect and interact with Web Audio API in real time to ensure that all audio nodes are connected in the way you expect.
Eyedropper: Copy the color of any pixel in the browser simply by mouseovering and clicking on the area you want.
Of course the features above are just an addition to the features the normal version Firefox has which we all know and love.
Overall, although the additions may not be compelling enough to have you rush to install this version, this is surely a step to the right direction since a developer targeted browser is something that a lot of people are interested in.
