A bunch of cunts, mostly in the Australian sense. Except that one guy.

The "X-Ray" extension for Firefox is pretty darned cool.

yep.

It allows you, with a right click, to see all the markup tags on a page, without having to view source. And it displays the markup inline with the page laid out the way it is rendered complete with the CSS (doesn't SHOW the CSS though).

Good stuff.

Doesn't work at all for framed sites, though.

Does it not show table markup either? It would much more useful if it did that, but I can't find the setting for that if so.

I haven't tried it on any sites with tables, so I dunno.

No it appears it does not... bummer, seeing what is an <A> or a <div> is pretty evident without the xray.

I think it could be pretty helpful while debugging a CSS laid out site.

The guy has said that if enough people ask he'll add support for more tags, so go ask!

The Aardvark plugin is similar.

editCSS has been around for a while, and is really useful. It lets you edit the CSS in real time in a left frame/navbar/thingy.
