In the talk I’ll talk about the history around Firebug and the Firefox DevTools. Also, I will outline some of the important features the Firefox DevTools have making them unique over Firebug and also the Chrome DevTools including hidden features.


Sebastian Zartner

Sebastian was one of the main Firebug contributors back in the time when there were no developer tools built into the browsers and nobody ever heard of a browser named Chrome. He started web development at the time between PHP 3 and 4. Though since he learned about ColdFusion back in the time when MX 6 was the latest, he loved to work with it and quickly began to wonder why PHP didn't have all that great features CFML offered.
