All browsers come with tools that help developers test web pages and ensure the site(s) they’ve developed play nice. Additionally, there are also add-ons or extensions that help developers and the Firebug add-on for Firefox is one of the more popular examples. For each browser, you have different tools and there is little uniformity among them. The tools will all provide some basic features but it is safe to say some browser’s developer tools are better than those of others.
