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 2.0.9

Verdict:

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

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
