I’ve, as you maybe know, been working on a Silverlight flickr viewer for my fiancées blog. And now that I have finally got it all done, blogged about it and so on, it was time to actually implement it on her blog. So I took the code from my blog posts and built my services and view models, but tore out the entire view layer and replaced it with a somewhat prettier thing. It has a thumbnail view that is visible in her blog posts. It looks as small Polaroid photos scattered on her page. And then when you click one of them, it changes to a full screen view and shows a larger Polaroid picture with the pictures description an handwriting.
But then I published it. And when doing so, it stopped working. There was something wrong with the css. So I brought up Firefox. I love Firebug, but generally use IE for all my browsing. I don’t know why, but I just don’t feel comfortable with Firefox for some reason. But Firebug is unbeatable. The “Developer Tools” in IE 8 is a step in the right direction, but Firebug is just better… I would even dare say that Firebug and Fiddler 2 are probably the most helpful little tools you can have as a web developer. Next to .NET Reflector, but that is more general .NET development help than web development.
