IE Leak Tool: Drip 0.3 Released

Category: Browsers, IE, JavaScript, Utility

<>p>We announced Drip, the IE Leak Detector back in June.

Since then, the project got picked up by Matthias Miller, and his team has released a new version of the tool.

The new features of Drip are:

Major enhancements include:

  • Drip now supports popup windows. (Note that the “Auto-Refresh” button does not apply to popup windows.)
  • Major fixes include:

    • Drip no longer incorrectly reports certain memory leaks involving createElement and cloneNode.
    • Drip no longer crashes when navigating to a folder on the hard drive.
    • Drip no longer crashes when accessing properties for a leaked element that used filters.

    Minor changes to the user interface include:

    • Drip now supports Windows XP themes.
    • Drip now displays real-time memory usage.
    • “Blow Memory” has been renamed to “Auto-Refresh”.
    • All windows are now resizeable.
    • The memory leak report can be copied to the clipboard.
    • The memory leak report and properties window include a “Properties” button.
    • The properties window shows the name of the parent object.
    • The properties window indicates which objects are null.

[...] Since then, the project got picked up by Matthias Miller, and his team has released a new version of the tool. Drip no longer crashes when accessing properties for a leaked element that used filters. The properties window shows the name of the parent object. Brendon built the engine on his AJFORM Ajax toolkit, and it allows you to query both PHP and JavaScript-style regular expressions. The favelet will remain active, but the Data Window will not follow the cursor.Summary of: http://ajaxian.com/by/topic/utility/page/2/ [...]
