I posted this link to the Elsewhere section yesterday, but think it's worth a mention in its own right. Microsoft have made available for download a Developer Bar for Internet Explorer. Not just IE7 either. It works with IE6 and onwards.
It hasn't got the same number of features as Chris Pederick's Firefox equivalent, but it's got the important ones and some additions to boot. I like the Ruler feature a lot and can see that coming in handy.
Most importantly for me it has the DOM
Inspector Explorer - a "power-user" feature that lets you inspect and modify the DOM on the fly. It all makes me feel like I know what Im doing.
For a while it might have looked like Firefox was leaving IE behind. To me it now looks like IE is fast catching up. With its impending v7 release we can expect good things. All good news for us as both push for better support of standards and stuff.
As I said yesterday, IE7 looks a lot like Firefox to me. Confusingly so. Below is a screenshot of one on top of the other. Notice how similar the tabbed interface looks. Notice IE's new search box. All browsers are starting to look the same to me. A good thing I guess.
So, there you go. Download the toolbar. It's a must-have tool for any web developer. Later this week I'll give an example of when it might come in handy.
