Form Saver - Where have you been all my life?

I was just testing out a web app, which of course required me to fill out the same form over and over. Annoying, to say the least.

Then it hit me, I bet there's a Firefox Add-On that will do this for me. And sure enough, there is (well, probably many). The one that found and have taking an instant liking to is Form Saver.

The concept is really simple. Fill out a form with the test values, then click on Tools >> Form Saver. The result is a bookmarklet, that when clicked, it will instantly fill out the form.

Simple, and a huge time saver. Love it.

I've also been dabbling with Fire Bug - which is a really feature rich web page debugger. I can already tell it's worth taking a bit of extra time to read up on.

As Abe Lincoln said::

Give me eight hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first six sharpening the axe.

What a difference sharp tools can make.
