FX 4: the popup window setting is not working, go to View Source Chart Preferences and select Tab instead.

Only the first 4096 characters contained inside script tag pairs are displayed within a Source Chart.
This does not affect HTML generated by these scripts, it simply ensures that any HTML stored as JavaScript strings within script tags does not interfere with the charting of HTML outside of scripts tags.
This fix is necessary to properly handle Firefox's nodeValue character limit, while maintaining View Source Chart's performance.

Version 3.01 65.5 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.6.*

  • Displays entire opening tag in title tip when mouse hovers over a container. This is especially useful when viewing highly complex pages.
  • Cursor changes to hand to indicate clickable areas
  • Text inside containers is word wrapped
  • Selected text can be deselected (by clicking it) without collapsing a container

Known Bugs:
It is not possible to navigate away (via URL in location field) from a Source Chart.

Version 2.7 29.7 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.6.*

Bumped maxVersion to 3.5.*

Much faster than previous versions. Scroll-into-view collapsible containers (meaning when a container is collapsed from its side or bottom, the entire collapsed container is positioned within the viewport, so you never lose your place in a large html file).
Known issue: cannot load new url in source chart tab/popup.

Version 2.5.03 29.7 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.*

Fixed Fx Ver 2.0.05 bug which disabled collapse functionality in tab view. Added more locales.

Version 2.5.02 26.6 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.*

Displays JavaScripts within chart. Tab bug crushed!?! Better formatting of some form and head tags.

Version 2.4.05 25.6 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.*

-Ability to select text without collapsing a container

-Extraneous whitespace removed

-Scroll-into-view collapsibility

-Ability to edit styles using Web Developer extension

2.4.05 includes German, Spanish, Dutch, Croation, Portugese, Italian and French language locales (thanks Goofy).

Version 2.4.02 24.6 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.*

-Ability to select text without collapsing a container
-Extraneous whitespace removed
-Scroll-into-view collapsibility

Version 2.0.02 22.5 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Changed Name to "View Source Chart". Now containers are collapsible and expandable! Swapped coloring for Tables and Paragraph tags. No more red text to indicate form tags and their contents. Head, scripts and styles now in collapsible, dashed containers.

Version 1.5.02 21.5 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Updated to work with 1.5 RCs

Version 1.5 21.5 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Added Support for definition lists, tr, th, caption, thead, tfoot, tbody, underline, font and center tags. Bolded the title tag. Some container tags which were previously blockquoted, no longer are. This removes unwanted vertical spacing, improving side-to-side chart reading and allows more element layers in the viewport.

Version 1.2.03 21.5 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Updated for Firefox 1.5 Beta 2. Sleeker look - borders are 1 pixel instead of 2. Put a border on span containers. Moved the frameset (and all window.top documents) VRSC invokation from the Tools menu to the View menu.

Version 1.2.01 20.5 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.4

Version 1.2.01 Notes:
Changed default VRSC display setting to open in a regular browser window.
The XUL window has been replaced with a popup browser window. XUL window proved problematic in many ways, mostly involving loss of functionality in 1.5 Beta:
user could not decrease or increase text size using keyboard shortcuts.
User could not employ find functionality within window.
User could not close window with "Ctrl + w".
User could not use wheel scrolling.
XUL window would sometimes become frozen, leaving user unable to close.
Using a regular browser window allows for all this functionality and more.
FF 1.5 Beta now allows user to view multiple tabs in a popup browser window,
making it easy for user to toggle between multiple tabbed windows, even when
menubar does not exist.

Version 1.0.01 19.5 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.0.4

-Now VRS can be used as a plug-in for the Platypus extension!

-Now you have the option to display the VRS source in a new tab or a new window. If VRS garbles your non-English characters, opening in a new window will correct that problem.

-VRS 10.0.1 is licensed under the GPL license.

Version 0.9.9.6 18.4 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.0.4

Now opens Source Display in a new tab instead of a new window. Added styling of definition lists.

Version 0.9.9.3 18.4 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.0.4

Fixed a little bug which could potentially cause non-commented HTML to be altered like its commented HTML twin.

Version 0.9.9 47.1 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.0.4

Now opens in a regular window with all the bells and whistles.

Version 0.9.6 47.1 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.0.4

Version 0.9.4 47.1 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.0.3

Added line breaks: now VRS auto-wraps text following white space.

Version 0.9.3 22.5 KB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.0.3

Version 0.9.3 Added border and margin around tables to delimit nested tables. Huge help for templated sites which use a lot of nested tables like phpBB.
