Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

Wouldn’t it be nice to have one-click access to the validators? And surely there’s an easier way to snap your browser window to a specific resolution without manually dragging a corner? Wouldn’t the world be a better place if you could turn CSS off at any time, and back on again just as easily?

If you answered yes to any or all of the above, you need a developer extension for your browser. Steve Faulkner has recently released one for Internet Explorer called the Accessibility Toolbar, but the features go far beyond simple accessibility checks.

There are a few options for Mozilla/Netscape/Firebird/Camino: we’ve mentioned Checky in the past, which has since hit version 2.0. Also available is Chris Pederick’s Web Developer, and WaSP’s own Chris Casciano has put together another called the PNH Developer Toolbar.

Update: Michael Cacciottolo informs us of his MOZiE, which offers previews in both MSIE and Mozilla on top of one-click access to many of the same functions as the toolbars mentioned.
