Browser whilst using Rails

Hi
I’m just starting to learn Rails, deploying it under SuSe Linux and
Mac OS X.
Silly question but without being contraversial what web browsers do
people think its best to use to view the results.
No need to complain about IE because I will be using webrick so its
only viewable on the actual machines :slight_smile:

TIA Paul

Firefox has an extension called IETab which let’s you open IE windows
in a tab inside Firefox - very useful for web dev. Also, if you mess
with CSS and Javascript a lot, Firefox has a DOM inspector and very
detailed “Page info” that I have made frequent use of.

Like Alex says, you’ll need to test on at least Opera and Safari too.

And a superb extension called Firebug that has saved me countless
hours of hunting down elusive javascript, generated-html and ajax
bugs.

There are Several Extensions for Firefox that let you exaim GET/POST and
HTTP Header Information send by the server.

Your Webapplication should run on “any browser”. If you use ajax I’d
recommend adding all functionality without javascript (slow but still
working) as well.
