Firebug for FireFox. Indispensable, and better than IE's dev. tool in my opinion. http://getfirebug.com/
Chrome has a dev tool similar to IE, using the F12 key.
Safari is Ctrl+Alt+I for a similar Dev tool.

Hi Web Developers,
I have a question that I wanted to ask to anyone who might know what I am talking about:
When you are developing a web site in Internet Explorer, Microsoft provides a developer tool (click F12) that allows you to view your
web site in previous versions of Internet Explorer (at least back to IE 7). Very handy since a lot of users don't update their browser as fast as we would like.
Does Firefox or any of the other major browsers have anything similar to this?
For Firefox, I have tried downloading previous versions like FF 5 and 4, and creating a separate user profile for each version,
but this gets annoying very quickly, because my add-ons, particularly Firebug, get messed up or disabled in some way. (Tampering with
about:config also seems to be unsuccessful:)
I would like to believe Mozilla has developers in mind and that they would give them easy access to earlier versions of their browser.
Any help on the subject would be appreciated.
Thanks and see you at the next meetup!
