#Web Developer Add-On for XUL-Capable Web Browsers Home page of this unofficial version, modified by Apollia: []( Home page of the official version: []( ----- 02:43:21 03/16/2021. Text by Apollia: This is a great, very useful add-on I've been using for many years. Once I figure out how, I'd like to add some keyboard shortcuts for the 2 commands I use most frequently - "View Generated Source" and "View Image Information". My modified version is only for XUL-capable web browsers such as [Pale Moon](, or Firefox versions prior to the ruinous Firefox 57. (Firefox 57 made Firefox XUL-incapable, and thereby removed Firefox's ability to use tons of great old add-ons.) <br>If you need a version of this add-on which will work in web browsers I avoid, such as Firefox 57 or later, Chrome, or Opera, you should probably use the newest official version of this add-on. Home page of the official version: []( <br>Also, my modified version will probably never make use of the [Gulp build system]( As of 3/26/2021, I have no convenient way to use Gulp, because I wasn't able to find a sufficiently easy way to install [Node.js]( in [Lighthouse 64 Puppy Linux 6.02 Beta 2]( So, hopefully I'll be able to figure out how to remove all the dependencies on Gulp. <br>On 3/16/2021 around 1 AM EDT, I cloned the official version's repo from: []( The starting point of my modifications is Firefox add-on version 1.2.12, the most recent version for XUL-capable web browsers. I reverted this repo to the Fri Feb 17 16:14:46 2017 -0800 commit, or, to be more specific: a97e57f432d24d31bc5091fdce237953cdeb1422 <br>For summaries of my modifications, please see this repo's commit history, from 3/16/2021 onward.
