For your web toolbox
Web Developer is a FREE web browser add-on (Firefox, Flock, Mozilla, Seamonkey) that allows you to view just about every element of a web page in any way you choose.
For example, selecting “Images” then “View Image Information” produces a list of all of the images that make up the page along with the name, location, width, height, and size of each. Choosing “Miscellaneous” then “Edit HTML” adds a box to the page that allows you to edit the code on the page to see effect changes make to the layout.
Web Developer is a great tool for both serious designers AND those who want to learn about what makes a web page tick. Just promise me, if you download and use this tool, that you will make a donation its developer, Chris Pederick—such a wonderful tool deserves the support of its users.
