Thank You For This Plug-In Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have used the DOM Inspector for some time now and would like to say Thank You for this plug-in. It has been a blessing to me as I have evolved in my role as a web developer.
Like the previous commenter, there was a time I didn't know the meaning DOM (Document Object Model). I can trace my computer roots back 1973 as a sophomore taking a Fortran class. I may not have owned my own company where I can hire people to KNOW things for me so I have learned to LEARN before criticizing somebody about something of which I know nothing. I did not know what DOM was until I needed/wanted to learn about this web developing related subject.
The DOM Inspector has many more features than I use. This may be the result of my knowledge diffency rather than an overkill on the author's part. I sometimes use some of the features for possibly other than intended reasons... Like by turning image paths on it is quite easy to see if that ebay auction is stealing a client's image bandwidth or say when visiting paypal.com if the image paths are from paypal.com (bad) or a local directory (better - but not "good", could be lifted.). If I am suspecious enough I'll even check if the javascipt is changing the link names or desitinations. I also use DOM Inspector to examine other web sites. I like to browse the site structure of both sites I like and that of those I don't like. I like to see what of where I can improve as well as what things to avoid. Thank You for this plug-in.
