1. Hey Aaron, (Thanks for visiting/commenting)

    While it does show class & ID names, it doesn’t appear to parse inline style declarations.

    If you’re running the Firebug extension (which I highly recommend, it’s another rockin’ add-on) getting that next level of info is just a click away.

    I mean, X-Ray doesn’t take the place of those more robust tools, but I really dig being able to see the HTML tags ‘inline’ with the actual page structure.

  2. Sweet – I checked out Aardvark briefly before, I like the way you can use set keystrokes to take out elements or color them on the fly – and how you can call up the source code of an individual element (& nested elements)

    I’m no master coder by far, but between X-Ray, Firebug and Aardvark I’m able to fix most of what I break :P

  3. That’s totally the kind of X-Ray I was thinking of when I created this. :)

    If you like X-Ray, the updated companion extension ‘Professor X’ will be available very soon. That lets you see into the ‘HEAD’ of the web page. Heh.

  4. looking forward to that one too – I used to love the MetaTags sidebar add-on – it’s pretty cool, it automatically grabs the meta content and displays it, nice & neat in a sidebar.

    The output can be highlighted/copied/pasted – which was cool because I used it when I would do an initial overview of a sites optimization, or when I was reviewing a clients implementation of my recommendations.

    I would just copy the discrepancies into an excel – I hate typing :P

    So looking forward to the updated Professor X too – heh

  5. Nice find. I was pretty sure that you could already do this with the Web Developer extension but if that’s the case, I can’t see how. Just grabbed it.

  6. Just a note – another Firefox add-on from the same author (Stuart Robertson) has been updated for Firefox – Professor X is another great add-on, I’ll post more about it soon, just wanted to drop the word.
