Google has highlighted a few Firefox add-ons that could be of great use to AdSense publishers. These include:

IE View
WebDeveloper Toolbar

"Do you regularly work with your webpages and AdSense implementation, tinkering with HTML or PHP and creating images and code on the fly?" asks Laura Prado of the Inside AdSense Team. "If you do, Firefox add-ons can help streamline the process of creating webpages."



The Colorzilla add-on allows you to get a color reading from any point within your browser. You can then paste this color into another program.


The MeasureIt add-on allows you to draw out a ruler to get the pixel width and height of any elements on a webpage. It will allow you to define how much space you have left for your AdSense ads.

IE View

The IE view add-on is great for cross-browser compatibility testing. It lets you load pages in IE with a single right-click, or mark certain sites to always load in IE.

Web Developer Toolbar

Finally, the Web Developer Toolbar add-on adds a menu and a toolbar with various web developer tools such as JavaScript display, form and CSS elements, screen resizing, HTML validation, etc.

What About Chrome?

Prado says that hopefully Google will soon have a similar set of add-ons for the company’s own Chrome browser, but until then, these Firefox ones should do nicely. Although it is interesting to see Google promoting the use of a competing browser.

    Ummm great stuff from the adsense team as they continue to cut the earnings of adsense publishers.

    How about a tool to see which ads were clicked on and generated revenues??

    Silly design tools are great for designer but I would venture to guess 75% of adsense publishers are NOT designers.

    Another great Adsenseless post from the Adsenseless team……

      It’s good for the people of America as well as for the people around the world that Mr. Obama is now the President of most powerful nation of the world. We all are hopeful of something good which will make this world a better place to live.

    Sorry, but I don’t see these as AdSense tools either. Conversion and landing page building tools, yes. To narrow the post down to AdSense Publishers is going a bit too far IMHO.

      Certainly they’re not limited to being AdSense tools. I think the AdSense team was just noting that they could be of use to AdSense publishers. And yes, those that have some knowledge of design, most likely.
