This should be integrated into Firefox. So much better than the default View Source.
Does everything I want. Opens in new tab, overrides FF standard keyboard shortcut. No problems with searching or anything.
Great plugin but search option (Ctrl+F) NOT available, Not work !!!
Nice extension. I prefer to view page source in a side panel and this is the only way I have found to do so. Firebug won't; AOIS won't and so on.
However, I gave it only 3 stars because there is no way to close the panel once it is opened. There is no close button on the side panel, no close option in the context menu; clicking on the page source button again just opens a window. I had to restart Firefox to get rid of the side panel. This won't do.
I like this extension but surely, it couldn't have been too much trouble to add a close option.
This is an incompatibility with AOIS. If you disable/remove that add-on, the close button is available.
the idea is great, but it has two big bugs:
- when submit a form and take me to another page, the extension shows the form's page source instead the submited page
- when changing preferences to view source in another tab, it opens thousands of blank tabs
(i'm using FF 4.0)
I find that the bottom bar option is the most useful, and in my opinion should be set to default before uploading... either that or the new tab option.
Also, the sidebar option should be deleted. It is too skinny to see anything and you have to keep scrolling to the right more often than when viewing the code in a new tab or on the bottom bar.
This is a great add-on though, and would definitely recommend it to web developers.
Would be an excellent Add On if, when switching tabs, the source code displayed in the sidebar also switches to match the selected tab.
Source update on tab switching is now implemented in version 0.5.
It doesn't over ride the main context menu "View Page Source"
Great idea! More choices than Source Viewer Tab, but doesn't play nice with HTML Validator, which also uses the Page Source window.
