XPather is an excellent add-on to the DOM Inspector. Sure, you can manually navigate 20-nodes deep into a tree -- sometimes. XPather is a quick way to get exactly where I want to go. Plus, the interactive evaluator is a big time-saver. It's got a small footprint, and does what I need.
My only quibble is that the xpath expression is not available in the DOM Inspector when diving directly to the element; but navigating to the nearest node and back fixes this.
could really use a feature to convert xpath to adblock plus CSS selector!!
XPather highlights malformed XPath statements as you type them out – very helpful.
A great extension, I use it all the time when writing GreaseMonkey scripts.
I would like a version for Firefox 3.0b5 and not only until Firefox 3.0b5pre. Please. It will help me for my web development. Regards
Great add-on that allows you to create xpath specifications interactively. Thanks!
I found this tool to be extremely useful. It is invaluable when using greasemonkey. Tested on AMD64 built Gentoo linux and 64 bit Firefox 126.96.36.199.
I have only one criticism (using XPather 1.3 with Firefox 188.8.131.52 on Windows XP SP2): if I right-click on an element and select Show in XPather, I get the XPather window but it is inactive: I don't have the XPath of the element, and if I type something simple like //a and Eval, I get nothing.
Actually, for me XPather works only within the DOM Inspector, where it is already very useful.
This is quite useful and powerful. Nice with preview, regexp, etc. One request: give an option for the window to appear in the sidebar (along with the DOM inspector itself)
