Mozilla Developer Support Tools

 < Day Day Up > 

When many programmers and developers are working on a project and they are not part of a tightly organized team, tools are vitally necessary!

Fortunately, developers have some great avenues of support. Mozilla has an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server that hosts chat forums for all its products. Firefox doesn't support IRC directly, so for an IRC client, consider ChatZilla an extension for Firefox.

Note

Although ChatZilla is a Firefox extension, it does not run in a Firefox window. Instead, ChatZilla creates its own window that is independent from Firefox.


There are four main developer tools: Bugzilla, Tinderbox, Bonsai, and LXR. Each of these tools is found at http://www.mozilla.org/developer/. If you are going to contribute to the mainstream Firefox development effort, you will need to know and understand each of these tools.
