Web Developer plugin for Safari?
January 21, 2006 1:42 PM   Subscribe

Something for (the latest version of) Safari that allows me to see which DIV I'm in by mousing over a section of the screen? Any suggestions besides webdevadditions (which doesn't work for me and the developer is unresponsive).

Sounds like you want a recent nightly of WebKit.

Thanks kindall, but after looking at that page, downloading it, typing that line into terminal, and scooting thru the wiki... I have no idea how to use the thing. It says I shold see a new "Inspect Element" in my contextual menu, but I don't.

hmmm... weird. :( I haven't tried it myself.

You don't need to type anything into the terminal. Just grab the latest nightly build from here. It worked for me.

Just download the nightly build, open it, ctrl-click on something and choose "inspect element." No terminal typing required. I actually like it better than Firefox's DOM inspector.

ah, okay, I understand now. It's a separate app or something that I run instead of Safari (but that brings up Safari). I had assumed I type that stuff in the Terminal and then run Safari and the menu would be in it.

*slaps head*

Thanks!

Thought not a plugin per se, you might also try Mouseover DOM Inspector.
