View Source Button on IE 6.0 or Firefox possible?

Discussion in 'Programming' started by Phoenix, Sep 7, 2004.

    Not exactly where I should put this, but does anyone know if it would be possible to put a "view source" button (in the nav bar) for Internet Explorer or Firefox, or any browser for that matter. I have to look at source code often, and it would be quicker with such a feature, instead of using the "view menu" and select "source code". Any ideas? Thanks

    In FireFox you can hit CTRL+U for view source or install Chris Pederick's Web Developer 0.8 toolbar which has its own View Source buttton amongst other goodies ;)

    not directly related, but am I the only one that is annoyed by the IE 6 not showing the source on "first time" page views? I have to refresh the page sometimes multiple times, and then click View Source again for it to work. It's really annoying, especially when the content of the page varies from reload to reload.

    Thanks guys! Good responses. Yes, I do appear a tad bit mouse dependent. But when it comes to programming xhtml, I am all keys. I justed started using Firefox, and been a long time IE user, so was just curious if it would be possible to add a button somewhere for the hell of it.

    Forgive me ignorance, this is not my area of expertise. But how would you do this:

    i'd like to be able to navigate in "view source" mode using the site navigation bar. That would be helpful to me to compare metas and debug code instead of opening each page in a new windows + a source window for each page to check a site's code...

    I'm probably the only one to use it though. :rolleyes:

    DJI-man,

    There is way, sort of! I would use the tool if it was created, for analyzing multiple sites code easily. Maybe you could figure out a way to use it for each site your visit it too. I am sure it wouldn't be too hard to program.

    view-source:http://www.mywebsite.com

    This will instantly open the view source in a notepad file.
