Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar

Download details: Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar Beta: Hadn’t seen this before, but I’m game for anything that makes developing for IE suck less.

Explore and modify the document object model (DOM) of a Web page. […] Locate and select specific elements on a Web page through a variety of techniques. […] Selectively disable Internet Explorer settings. […] View HTML object class names, ID’s, and details such as link paths, tab index values, and access keys. […] Outline tables, table cells, images, or selected tags.

Another example of how open-source software tends to make commercial software better. Would they have released this if not for the fantastic Web Developer Extension for Firefox? Not a chance.

  1. Actually this is already some 2 years old. I too assume that it was initiated by the FF toolbar. However the IE developer toolbar offers way less functionality. So don’t be misled by the name. If it really comes down to debugging CSS interpretation issues with IE it is of little help.
