Leland Scott let us know about the Web Kit teams latest Web Inspector debugging tool.
On downloading a new build of WebKit today, I found that Web Inspector finally can provide those critical Metrics and Properties of each DOM element on my web pages. And boy, have they done a great job in the implementation! Every bit as cool and functional as the original bits, so I can now get all the details on any element of the page with a right-click of my mouse (control-click for some folks) and a simple selection of â€œInspect Element.â€ Now come on Firebug fans, donâ€™t you wish you could inspect an element that easily?
Seriously, though, Web Inspectorâ€™s chief virtuesâ€”the characteristics that have made me anticipate this day for so long nowâ€”are its ability to let me quickly focus on one part of a page at a time, and to just as quickly and easily expand the scope of my focus to take in a larger context.
I can’t wait to have this in a non-nightly build, but rather in Safari itself!
