    Arrow Firefox Plugins for Mobile Web Developers

    If you are doing any mobile website development where you are using device detection or adaptive content, you know how unreasonable it is to use a mobile phone/device to test your site live. There are a few plugins that you can use with Firefox that allow you to basically emulate a live mobile device. These shouldn't be used in place of actual live device testing but for testing while developing, these have been invaluable to me. Firefox Plugins:
    • wmlbrowser - Add WML markup support to your browser.
    • XHTML Mobile Profile - Add xHTML MP support to your browser.
    • User Agent Switcher - Use this plugin to send the user-agent string of whichever mobile browser you want to emulate. Try a diverse range of user-agents to make sure your app can handle all the different formats.
    • ModifyHeaders - Allows you to spoof headers. Use this to add an x-up-subno, x-wap-profile, etc. header to your browser session so your app thinks you are coming from a network operators proxy.
    With these few Firefox plugins you can get close enough to looking like whichever mobile device you'd like without having to suffer the delay of testing with a real phone.

    User swichter is must, and you can download Firebug to help read the code more easy
