I just wanted to find out what browser people used for web testing what plug ins do they find useful?
At the moment I use frefox and so far use tampa data,foxy proxy,firebug and live headers
I also have chrome install what I used for searching the web if I am using firefox to test a site.
What are you using ? any plug ins you can recommended ?

As for plugins, it’s a rather long list:
User Agent switcher
Add n edit cookies
and I’m sure a bunch more that I don’t remember off the top of my head.
I also use IE (multiple versions), Links, Chrome and Safari at times as well but FF is my primary.

While I’m not doing much web-app testing (job requirements changed at work), I still have to do troubleshooting with load balancers (network engineering side). Currently I use:
I think my primary home system actually has more installed.

I use Chrome, day-to-day, but Firefox for almost all pentests, simply for all of the great plugins. Just hard to beat, when you have everything in one place.
In addition to those plugins, which chrisj and tturner mentioned, there are so many more (Netcraft, MANY SQL ones, etc – to give a small sampling)

I just ran into “Firecat” the other day for Firefox. It looks like it’s a collection of security auditing plugins.

Thanks will defo have play with some these as my new job wants me to test web apps and I am used to doing more network stuff so taking bit time to get used to what tools to use and stuff.

I really like Mantra. Good call! Btw for folks having issues getting it to work with Firefox installed, follow the instructions at http://getmantra.com/forums/Thread-running-mantra-and-firefox-together

Live HTTP Headers
Firebug (must have)
And a tool outside the browser:
– Burp Suite Free (intercepting proxy with nice spider features)
And a scripting language like Python. That’s pretty much all you need from basic to more advanced exploitation.
I recommend you get some sort of character encoding tool too, for example I use this a lot: http://intern0t.net/xssor/
