New Info About FireEyes Installation Added January 2013
I bet my accessibility toolbelt is wider than yours! I’m always collecting free accessibility tools. Why? Because I like to see what each one does and how it can help me be a better tester. My current toolbelt includes:
- WAVE Toolbar
- Web Developer (Firefox Extension)
- JIm Thatcher’s Favelets
- Jon Gunderson’s Accessibility Evaluator
- Juicy Studio Accessibility Toolbar
In a class by itself, is FireEyes. A free testing tool that will blow your socks off (once you get it installed in a compatible environment). I’ll admit, the installation process is delicate. FireEyes depends on having just the right versions of the following stack (updated Feb 22, 2013)
Don’t forget to turn off automatic updates for FireFox and FireBug. And you must Disable the FireFox Blocklist (until we release the java-free version of FireEyes. coming soon).
Because this is such a moving target, we are centralizing the “how to” for FireEyes installation at FireEyes FAQ
I can’t wait for the java-free version of FireEyes to be in our hands.
