Mozilla & Gecko clones "For many users of Mozilla's open source Firefox Web browser, Firefox is simply a tool for looking at Web content. For others, Firefox is an enabling tool to actually help develop content and code for the Web. This week, Mozilla released the results of a developer survey it conducted in November 2009. The survey received responses from 5054 developers spread across 119 countries and provides some insights into how developers work with Firefox - and what about Firefox makes it so critical as a tool for developing."

What's so special?

I'm not a professional web developer, so I gotta ask. What makes Firefox a superior dev environment to other browsers? For my pet projects I usually use Opera Dragonfly, since Opera is my main browser, and I have found it quite nice, without missing any of Firebug's capabilities. Also, although I haven't use them at all, Chrome's dev tools seem to do pretty much the same stuff.

So, have I missed some of firebug's functionality? Is there some other add on that is crucial for web development? The linked article seems to be shy on the details.
