If MS seriously want people

If MS seriously want people to use IE as a webdevelopment tool maybe they should fix the browser before adding toolbars Wink

looks like a hybrid

Thanks Hugo.

It looks like a hybrid between firebug and the web developer toolbar for FF.

Features:

  • find element: click to display the properties and values
  • disable: scripts, css
  • view: class, id information, etc.
  • outline: divs, tables, positioned objects
  • cache: disable, clear, etc.
  • tools: resize, color picker, ruler
  • validate: just seems ironic Smile

I didn't have any problem with installing it, surprisingly it even works on my IE6 standalone version.

I remember you had troubles installing that other IE toolbar for IE6 way back . . .

This is my big chance . . . yep, I blew it . . .

Does any of the windows

Does any of the windows browsers have a facilty (perhaps via plugin or whatever) which will attempt a "view source at this point"?

Much like with Firefox you can open the DOM inspector at the current element. In many cases I would like to be able to open the page source at the current element. I realise the browser translates the HTML into DOM and going back may not be so easy, but its something I often find I need to do. It is particularly problematic when dealing with pages developed by people who seem to pride themselves on the depth of table nesting they can achieve. They manage so many that I can't see the full containment heirarchy using either View Style Information (status bar) or Inspect Element (DOM Inspector left pane[1]). And investing in a 30" monitor seems excessive.

[1] FF DOM Inspector doesn't provide horizontal scrolling in the left pane. Are there any similar tools which do?

That's right, I think it's a problem my end rather than with the toolbar but that's the problem with flipping IE you can't repair the dam thing.

Rofl "validate: just seems ironic"

@ Chris can you not highlight a section of page and then right click and select 'view selection source' in IE same thing but select 'view partial source'

I know what you mean about the 'view style info' you end up with:
html>body>table>tr>td>table>tr>td>table>tr>td>table>tr>td>table>tr>td>table>tr>td>table>div #cont...

Getting to the element just as you run out of width. You would think 1280px would be sufficient to display the deepest nesting.
