These tools not only support the development process, but do some of the work for you:
1. W3C Markup Validation Service
The Markup Validator is a free tool and service that validates your markup and reports any errors or discrepancies in your code.
Long before Google Chrome came along, Mozilla’s Firefox has been helping push web development forward.
3. Web Developer Toolbar
Another great Firefox add-on is Firefox’s Wed Developer Toolbar. The toolbar adds a menu and as the name implies, a toolbar that serves up a variety of very helpful web dev tools.
Listamatic is an excellent site that offers tutorials on creating attractive and responsive navigation bars with CSS and one simple list.
5. Stock Exchange
Need photos for your website? Stock Exchange provides a stock photography community where artists and photographers share and exchange high-quality stock images. As a design resource, the site provides a library of high-resolution, royalty-free photographs. The images on the site are free, but remember to check the License Agreement for each image, as some artists request notification or photo credit.
