Parasite for Firefox

Move from host to host

Parasite is a simple Firefox Web development extension that enables switching the same page between hosting environments. In other words, open the same file path on a different domain name. Useful when working on a Web project that has multiple hosts/staging servers.

For example:

  1. Browse your live website:
  2. Select another environment from the host list, e.g. 'LOCAL'
  3. Firefox then opens the same page on the selected host: http://localhost/about/my-page.html
