Photoshop’s ruler guides have been a useful tool for designers, helping us to measure and position our images and other elements accurately across the document canvas. This useful tool has been migrated onto the Firefox browser window and converted into a free extension that proves useful for web designers.
foxGuidebeta is a Firefox extension developed by Meher Ranjan with the web designer in mind. It provides a matching implementation of Photoshop’s ruler guides, displaying horizontal and vertical guides in the browser window. The created guides can be edited in position and works both vertically and horizontally in helping the designer measure and improve his layout.
It has got some premium features, which makes this extension worth downloading, such as:
I’ve been using this tool briefly with Firefox 3.6 and it does what it says on the tin. Looking forward to future updates where a combining horizontal and vertical guides can be pulled at the same time from the top corner, like photoshop allows us to.
The extension has been built for Firefox 3.5 – 3.6 users. Download it free at http://meherranjan.com/foxguide/
