Exercise for Week 1

Install a copy of Firefox on your computer. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
It may not be your favorite browser but it very extendable with add-ons. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/
Next, go to Chris Pederick's web site and download Web Developer, one of my favorite extensions for Firefox. http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/ You can also obtain the extension via Firefox menu Tools > Add-ons... and search for Web Developer.
The Web Developer extension is chock full of useful tools and features, I will be referring to some of them in future classes. Have some fun trying it out.
