CSS element viewer for Safari

I really enjoy using Safari but I'm forced to have the RAM footprint of Firefox running for the brilliant web developer toolbar.

I mostly use the id & class viewer with the css editor allowing me to change the style of a well tagged site intuitively and live.

Is there anything like this for Safari? Just the element viewer would be useful.

I wish I had an answer for you. I've spent quite a bit of time searching the web for an extension like this for Safari, but have had no luck. I will post back if I find anything. I'd love to hear from others if they know about this.

Yeah, that's fairly useful in itself, but not enough to overturn firefox.

This is amazing! One caveat; I couldn't get it from the link in the quote, but got it instead from http://nightly.webkit.org/builds/. Safari couldn't open the link below, but Firefox could.

A question, guardian 34: One of the nicest things about the Firefox web developer tool is that I could click on the particular coding related to the text I was trying to restyle, and Firefox would tell me exactly which stylesheet the the style was coming from, and it's location in my website. I don't see how to do this in the webkit nightly build [Version 2.0.3 (417.8] I downloaded.

That said, I really look forward to giving this a workout!

Thumbs up

I answered my own question ; click on "style" in the viewer, and it will tell you the style sheet being used, and its location. Guardian, this is amazing! Thank you so much. Safari is making a great stride with this.

It hasn't caused a problem for me. But I now have two applications, one called "Safari" the other "Webkit". (This doesn't require renaming. When you download this nightly build of Safari, aka Webkit, just drag it to your applications folder. Webkit will pick up your bookmarks, but hasn't seemed to interfere in any way with the other app, Safari.)

Webkit doesn't seem to have the capacity to save passwords, or I would use it exclusively. I am currently using Webkit for development, and Safari for the bank, etc. I'm hoping there will be a new build soon that will save passwords/import passwords. Then it's perfect, as far as I'm concerned.

I downloaded the latest WebKit but I dont see the css inspector in the context menu. What gives? Is there something I should do besides just running the app?
