I thought I would share with the rest of the community this great little time saver. FireQuery, needs Firebug, allows you to query the DOM and see what changes take place - without saving a file or refreshing the page. Just like testing CSS changes in Firebug.
I am not a whiz with jQuery, though the logic is simple, the syntax is still new . Trail and error can be a slow method to learn a new language / technology but, Firequery got me to the point of failing quicker - to learn more quickly. If that makes sense... Before I knew it I was writing my own jQuery plugins.
A big thanks to binaryage for this very needed tool! I know jQuery newbies find it useful and am sure jQuery pros do too!
