When you are new in the web designing world it can become a real struggle finding tools that will help you do your job well and provide you the assistance you need to make your work easier. Now you have plenty of tutorials that can help you with the various programs or tools, making it easier for web designers to use and implement them straight off.
Although it is true that tutorials are a great help, it is still extremely useful to study other people’s work and analyze the way they proceed, and the methods they use for their projects. By analyzing solutions that have been already implemented, you will have a readily actuated plan that has worked already and that can work for you too.
There are also many tools available now, that allow you to study how a website works and what has been used to built it, when you find one you like. The Internet now provides a great array of tools, programs and information base for new web designers to help them launch their new career.
Some of the good tools web designers can use at the beginning of their profession are those toolboxes that provide various possibilities to analyze and inspect codes within a web browser. Developer tools, as they are called can be installed by default or even as plug-ins or extensions; this will allow you to visualize them directly from your browser.
You can view the source code of a web page with many more options and functions that were once available with the view source code option. There are multiple possibilities such as editing, inspecting and many more.
The Google Chrome developer tool is quite a recent addition compared to other browser tools, such as Firebug for Firefox, but it is developing fast and is enhancing its options with every new version it proposes. Safari is also keeping up as the competition is tight.
The Firebug web developer tool is definitely a good choice for your Firefox browser and is one of the most sought after extensions available on the Internet. There is also the Webkit developer tool that is rising in popularity, but Firebug still remains the most extensively developed one between the two.
Chrome Developer Tools and Firebug’s interface and work process are very similar and although the latter is still ahead, Chrome is working hard to provide enhanced tools that will soon be up to date with Firebug’s.
You also have the Opera’s version of developer tools and it is an extremely powerful interface for code inspection and analysis. It is still considered in third place after Firebug and Google Chromes developer’s tools although it is a good interface. The negative side of Opera’s developer tools is its unattractive interface, although its features do place Dragon fly amongst some of the best options.
