On the Firebug blog, an announcement is posted about the release of Firebug 1.2 beta 2. It’s compatible with Firefox 3.0 RC, but not with Firefox 2.0.

For the uninitiated, Firebug is a Firefox extension that provides a host of web development tools, such as various inspectors, a JavaScript debugger, etc.

A while ago I blogged about Firebug, a great Firefox extension for analyzing web pages (including CSS and JavaScript) and the interactivity between a browser and web servers.

Yahoo! have built on Firebug to produce a tool that goes even further. They call it: YSlow for Firebug.

Based on “Thirteen Simple Rules for Speeding Up Your Web Site” YSlow analyzes a web page, produces some reports (with a score card) and gives advice on improvements. This can be a great help in improving your website’s performance and reduce it’s bandwidth usage.
