Hold the line!
I had 3 possible entries lined up for today, including one on:
- A slightly humorous look at my insomnia
- Examining my propensity to pursue the unattainable
- Apple and I, the uneasy alliance
I’m dropping all of that for one reason:
the Mozilla/Firefox DOM Inspector.
If you’re interested in any form of web design, this tool will make your day. It will display the structure of your site, list out the CSS rules that you’ve defined for individual elements, the computed CSS rules (with inheritance), highlights on the page the element you’ve selected on the DOM, supports JS and so much more! And its a Mozilla Firefox plugin. What more do you need? ;-)
Also, I’ve got to put in a plug for Mozilla Firefox. It’s hands down the best browser I’ve found out there. With tabbing, integrated pop-up blocking, fast page displays, standards compliant engine (for you geeks out there), a robust extension system and more…the only question left to ask is:
“Why aren’t you using it?”
Try it out!
