Best browser with the best tools for PHP development?


Recommended Posts

Chrome? Edge? Other? Had a bad experience with Edge.

If development tools make one better than the other - what tools?

And if you are using PHPStorm maybe the choice of browser is less important? No?

All the major browsers have more-or-less the same tools available. Question is which ones feel more natural to you.

But that's mostly for frontend work with HTML, CSS, and even Javascript to an extent. Tends not to matter a whole lot for PHP - unless you count troubleshooting PHP's output, of course.

Agree. I personally find Firefox dev tools easier to read and work with, but Chrome and Edge tools (given that they're pretty much the same) are certainly not bad. For PHP though, you're probably going to want to look at XDebug or something similar - browser dev tools are built to handle what happens in the browser, not on the server.
