  • Great start 🙂 Thanks for sharing your ideas. I was just using Firebug till now, but those other complements are really useful. Looking forward for the next parts of your tutorial!

  • Really enjoyed this preview, I like the idea of setting up the browser extensions before jumping into joomla.

  • Ummm… well sorry if you don’t understand English, ’cause I certainly do speak it.
    Better luck with another tutorial buddy.

    Good Luck

  • 10 Minutes mate… wow! Your life must be so important that 10 minutes cannot be spent with a little background.
    I’ve been “damned”… woo hoo!
