Firebug-like Capabilities in Safari Browser

Sat Jul 24 11:31:22 2010

For a while now I have been using Firefox because.. well it's simply brilliant. However I always have found that it sometimes moves like a dog and there are just times when I can't afford to wait around. In some cases, switching over to Safari is faster but it doesn't have Firebug features... or at least so I thought.

On Mac OSX just run the following in Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app ),

defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitDeveloperExtras -bool true

and restart Safari. On restart, go to any web page and right click to show a pop up menu. Selecting 'Inspect Element' will pull up something that looks very similar to Firebug.

I haven't really played around with it all that much yet but I assume that it doesn't have features such as those found in Flashbug and PHPbug, but I normally use other solutions to those anyway as I have found better results elsewhere. But for your general HTML and CSS, it looks like a good alternative.
