Mozilla DOM UI Review

Category: Firefox

The Mozilla Foundation has given a grant out for doing a UI Review of the Firefox DOM Inspector. They are looking at what they can change and are looking for input.

What do you like and dislike about how it works at the moment?

What can it learn from other tools like Firebug and the Webkit Web Inspector?

If possible, it would be nice to monitor nodes in real time as pages are rendered and various client side things run.

It would be ~really~ nice to be able to see additional things on nodes, like any event listeners attached to them. More under the hood items, like watching attribute calculations being set (ie width/height/etc) and cached.

Basically anything that will give people a much deeper view of what is happening with the dom when they do various things.

Frank Hecker is (apparently) a guy to talk to about the DOMI grant:

Technorati shows little discussion on this. Who is involved and how does one get involved. I’d love for DOMI to be better. :)
