  • View Source Chart is a really useful extension for reading Document Object Model and vote for it to be ported to Firefox Quantum.

  • Really reliable!

  • What I love about it? Everything save that it is bot Quantum-compatible. The author has commented that she would like to continue with it, but "finding time will be a challenge. Wish I had help..."

    I am not technologically able to help, but have contributed money to the project in the past and would again, had I a notion of plausibility--something like "if every user would contribute $1.57, I estimate I could hire enough help, on a one-time basis, to get the job done," or "if every tenth user gave $20," &c &c. Then we users could know if we are talking about lifting a weight or whether it would be moving a mountain

  • This has been an invaluable tool for development and troubleshooting over the years. Alas, it is incompatible with Firefox 57 Quantum; any plans to update it?

    Developer response

    I want to, but finding time will be a challenge. Wish I had help...

  • The fonts are so small.

    Maybe we can change the font and size.

    Developer response

    Edit the font size of View Source Chart or any web page by pressing Control + (plug sign) on windows PCs, or Command + (plus sign) on OS X. Control/Command - (minus sign) decreases the size.

  • This add-on should completely replace the poor Firefox source view. May this could be an idea/improvement for the installer anyway.
    Thanks for developing this add-on.

  • It is fast indeed. Sometimes you need to inspect the DOM in detail and this little addon makes it a whole lot easier.

  • Most web sites now are partly/wholly generated, and/or minified, and the HTML is unreadable. This saves time because you don't have to copy-and-paste the page source in an HTML formatter. :)

    One "missing feature" would be a nice formating for

  • as a dev, I really like this! 5 stars and plz keep up the good work :)

  • I am on Linux, disabled all my other add-ons, and this add-on did not seem to work. The bookmarklet works fine. I just would like to have the right-click functionality. I am not sure if this add-on has a problem with the new versions of FF Dev Edition, or it is incompatible with other add-ons, but not working for me. I am still giving four stars though because I have used it for years and it is a great extension. I hope it gets an update soon.

  • Any plans for a SeaMonkey version?

    With sugar?

  • great alternative to the default source viewer.

  • If you're in development or bugfixing for your website, this is one of those must-have add-ons.

  • It 's useful for web developer.
    thanks

  • I was looking for a tool like this for. This works very well and I can analyze the dom quickly

  • i was just writing an involved php page.
    it was not 'showing' anything in browser.
    i was going crazy looking a 'code' trying to figure out why,. looked at 'page source' and all the text seemed to be there. tried forcing 'black' text to see if it had changed to white, even. Nope.
    then I remembered installing this addon.
    3, 4, 5 seconds... So obvious. I was missing a lessthan "<" on the freaking close title..
    How Cool.
    Thanks.
    Landis.

  • I consider View Source Chart to be an absolutely necessary tool in my dev toolkit. It allows you to truly understand the site's structure and relationships between its disparate parts. And if you're a "visual" type person, View Source Chart's UI will help you digest a site's element structure more thoroughly and quickly than a standard tree-style source presentation.

  • Awesome and very helpful! It would be nice if you could also edit the source code.

    Developer response

    I agree. Unfortunately I don't have the resources or skill sets to take it to the next level. Contact me through viewsourcechart.com if you (or anyone else) have any ideas.

  • Very useful add-on.
