Using Firebug Lite to inspect HTML in Internet Explorer and other browsers

You know Firebug as a Firefox extension but there is also a "Lite" version which runs purely off JavaScript.

Though all major browsers offer inspection tools you may like the Firebug style. Also, for me this is a lot better than the IE8 developer tools – and it works in older versions of IE, too.

Get the bookmarklet over at It usually loads the JavaScript code from a remote server but you can also download it to have it run locally. If adding the bookmarklet does not work in IE, add a new bookmark manually and copy&paste the JavaScript link. Ignore the warning about "javascript:" being an unknown protocol.
