7 Freebies From SitePoint You May Not Know About

By Shayne Tilley

befreeWe love a good freebie here at SitePoint. Some of you may remember book giveaways of the past, but aside from those one-off, limited-time giveaways, there’s a whole bunch of free stuff on SitePoint that is available every day.

1. Free Firefox Extensions

Firstly, we’ve got a couple of very handy extensions for Firefox, both compatible with FF 3.5.

  • CodeBurner: Hook directly into our CSS and HTML reference material from within Firebug.
  • Dust-me Selectors: A handy tool that finds unused CSS selectors on your site.

2. IE8 Web Slices and Accelerator

Follow SitePoint’s blogs and articles directly from the IE8 bookmarks toolbar, or tap into our reference material via a handy context menu in IE8.

3. Free Videos

Hours of free videos for your viewing pleasure.

4. Free Classified Listings

While most categories do have a fee, if you want to buy something, or are looking for link exchanges, then listing on the marketplace won’t cost you a dime.

5. Free Book and Kit Samples

Not only do our book samples allow you to try before you buy, they all contain valuable information that stand on their own. Check out the book matrix and see for yourself!

6. Free Newsletters

Over 800,000 subscribers can’t be wrong. There’s a treasure trove of great insight for designers, developers, and freelancers in our selection of fine newsletters.

7. Free Reference Material

Our complete HTML and CSS reference material — the exact same content you’ll find in our CSS and HTML Ultimate Reference books — plus the JavaScript DOM Core reference, are all available for free via our reference tab.

So the next time someone tells you that there’s no such thing as a free lunch, make sure you send them the link to this post!

    @Dan Schulz: Wow, haven’t seen that SitePoint design in a long time!

  • ShayneTilley

    Nothing gets past you does it Dan! I was going to get the style sheet updated and release that as ” more free stuff …” with some other new releases coming soon, but this will do :)

  • Japh

    Thanks for pointing these out, Shayne! I knew about some, but not others. Great free resources :)

  • Matthew Magain

    Damn that Dan Schulz character! :-D

  • Black Max

    Nice catch, Dan. The Dust-Me extension looks useful, thanks for the link.
