Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar
Its a *really* slow day here. I am installing Windows Vista 5219 to a Microsoft Virtual PC VM as we speak, but thanks to a bug that I am unable to fix Virtual Machine is running as slow as molasses - despite my laptop being a 1.2 Intel with over 800 Meg devoted to the VM.
But that's neither here nor there - while Vista is installing my laptop is pretty much useless making it well nigh impossible to get done what I need to do. So, I have two choices - kick back and watch DVDs with the kids and eat too much, or catch up on other stuff - y'all who know me well know which path I will choose...
Which leads me to the topic of my discussion - the new Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar. This is a seriously useful utility (despite my site failing CSS and HTML tests)
Ok, anyway.... the tool works with IE6 and IE7 and is well worth a look-see. The IE team blog which mentions the tool is here:
If you are a casual web surfer - let's be realistic - the tool is of no worth to you - but if you are a developer it is extremely useful - one of my correspondents described it today as “probably one of those things where you wonder how you got on without it before.”
