Available as a separate add-on as well.

Depending on how smooth things will go with Firefox 11 development, Mozilla plans to include a 3D web Inspector, which is already available in latest Firefox 11 (Aurora) builds.

Tilt 3D, a Firefox extension developed by the Mozilla itself, allows developers to render the 3D version of selected web page when required.

While it might sound like a waste of time, Tilt 3D can be actually pretty useful. “Since the DOM is essentially a tree-like representation of a document, this tool layers each node based on the nesting in the tree, creating stacks of elements, each having a corresponding depth and being textured according to the webpage rendering.”, said the authors.

However, since Tilt 3D is based on WebGL, not every video card is supported.

    More and more useless features from FF devs but of course after they got so much money from Google, they can waste them anyway they want. After 3 years, FF will have the same number of users that are no using FF for Android
