Reasons to use Firefox for web development:

- A-Frame and WebVR. One of the biggest recent innovations is Virtual Reality. And with mobile phones, browsers, and products like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive it’s more powerful.
- Common Voice, an open source initiative to make voice recognition available to everyone.
- The new developer tool comes with three different theme options: dark, clear and Firebug.
- One of the latest innovations in CSS is CSS Grid Layout. With DevTools, you can see your “display: grid” featured elements.
- With the box model structure, you can easily see how much space is occupied by properties such as margin, padding, and border.
- Introduction of variables. While not all browsers support variables, their use will increase over time.
- By pressing the .cls button on the right side of the DevTools dashboard, you can easily add and remove CSS classes of the HTML element you are inspecting.
- When you press the button next to the .cls key on the right side, you can easily test the hover, active, and focus states of the current element.
