Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar

I recomend the Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar to everyone, it's quite pleasant to use.


The Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar provides several features for exploring and understanding Web pages. These features enable you to:

  • Explore and modify the document object model (DOM) of a Web page.
  • Locate and select specific elements on a Web page through a variety of techniques.
  • Selectively disable Internet Explorer settings.
  • View HTML object class names, ID's, and details such as link paths, tab index values, and access keys.
  • Outline tables, table cells, images, or selected tags.
  • Validate HTML, CSS, WAI, and RSS Web feed links.
  • Display image dimensions, file sizes, path information, and alternate (ALT) text.
  • Immediately resize the browser window to a new resolution.
  • Selectively clear the browser cache and saved cookies. Choose from all objects or those associated with a given domain.
  • Choose direct links to W3C specification references, the Internet Explorer team weblog (blog), and other resources.
  • Display a fully featured design ruler to help accurately align and measure objects on your pages.
  • Find the style rules used to set specific style values on an element.
  • View the formatted and syntax colored source of HTML and CSS.

The Developer Toolbar can be pinned to the Internet Explorer browser window or floated separately.

Yes, as Yannik pointed out, Firebug is more feature rich but of course it is a FireFox tool. I imagine as the IE toolbar is supported futher it will catch up in features quickly, but mainly, its in IE, which is what is most important to me and most my users.

In follow up to this:

As Yannik showed me , FireBug is a much more powerful tool than IE developer toolbar, however it is still limited by the fact that it is not hosted in IE. So alas, I need both tools.
