Editors' Note: The Download Now link will prompt a local download of the Firefox extension. To install the extension directly, open the file using your Firefox browser.
This free Firefox add-on breaks down all of the individual files that go into a single Web page so that you know exactly where the files are coming from. It worked without a hitch during our tests.
View Dependencies operates through a tab that has been added to Firefox's Page Info feature. As you browse, simply right-click to reveal the View Page Info link, and select the Dependencies tab. From there, a tree-menu style interface displays all of the file links and the file size. By right-clicking on a file link, you can open the page in a new tab for view. Everywhere we browsed, we were able to view a comprehensive list for the specific Web page.
We appreciate this add-on for the added security it brings while browsing the Web. We highly recommend it for all user levels.
View Dependencies adds a tab to the Page Info window, in which it lists all the files which were loaded to show the current page. It orders the files by servers and by types (image, stylesheet, script). The size of each file, the total size per server and the total page size are displayed. With a context menu, you can open any file in a new tab or new window. You can also copy a URL to the clipboard.
