Hacker's garden of Firefox plugins

Dark Reading has a great roundup of "hacker" Firefox extensions, including ones that let you modify your cookies and user-agent string, examine and manipulate web-pages in detail, and debug (and spot vulnerabilities in) Javascript/AJAX.

The Web Developer extension is another must-have. This extension has too many features to list, and I typically find a new one each time I use it. Some of the features include editing practically every aspect of the page (HTML, CSS, cookies), viewing all elements in the page in a sort of WYSIWIG way, and converting form submission methods from POSTs to GETs and vice versa. I use it primarily for dissecting Web pages, but it comes in handy to convert the POSTs to GETs in order to easily manipulate the values in the URL address bar
