Home » Software » Firefox, Firebug, and yslow are REQUIRED

by 1 comment

A lot of the past and upcoming articles on AskApache are focused on speeding up a server or website, or just making things more efficient.

I find it hard to imagine ANYONE who is cool enough to be on this site would NOT already be using Firefox and Firebug.. That goes for my favorite people too, unix/linux/bsd geeks, these are so helpful for web development and all the fun stuff we do.

I'm starting several speed tip articles that require the following 3 programs if you want to follow along, that is... if you can keep up! ;)

Download and Install



Download Firebug.

Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of development tools at your fingertips while you browse. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page...


Download yslow.

YSlow analyzes web pages and tells you why they're slow based on Yahoo's rules for high performance web sites.

Hacking and Hackers

The use of "hacker" to mean "security breaker" is a confusion on the part of the mass media. We hackers refuse to recognize that meaning, and continue using the word to mean someone who loves to program, someone who enjoys playful cleverness, or the combination of the two.
-- Richard M. Stallman

It's very simple - you read the protocol and write the code. -Bill Joy
