Firebug
Debug HTML, CSS and JavaScript in any web page

Firebug is a Firefox add-on which integrates a host of essential web development tools into the browser.

A powerful source editor shows you the HTML source as it's being transformed by JavaScript, highlighting changes as they happen so they're easy to spot. You can view the properties of any individual element in a click or two, click on page objects to instantly see the HTML and CSS behind them, and even create, edit or delete HTML elements and see the changes right away.

Firebug's CSS tools make it easy to see which rules are styling individual page elements. Or you can view entire style sheets, if you prefer. If there are problems then you're able to disable any CSS property in a click, just to see how a page appears without them. And not only does Firebug allow you to edit CSS properties, it also knows which keywords you can use, so you don't have to remember every option yourself: just press the Up and Down arrows and the program will cycle through all the possibilities.

Firebug also includes a very powerful JavaScript debugger, which is able to step through scripts, can pause execution on particular lines, break on errors, watch expressions, and more. Or, if everything works, but performance is poor and you're not sure why, then Firebug's JavaScript profiler could help you figure out the problem.

Other tools on offer will help you to check page load times, understand JavaScript, CSS or XML errors, or log in-depth details on what's happening as your page runs.

Version 2.0 extended the addon with JavaScript syntax highlighting, DOM events and JavaScript Expression inspectors, pretty printing, and improvements to HTML searching, code auto-completion, and more.

Version 2.0.4 is a maintenance release.

Verdict:

Firebug offers an excellent set of web development tools, and despite all its power remains generally very easy to use

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
