slayeroffice - web experiments gone horribly awry

05.17.2004 - MODI v1.2

The Mouseover DOM Inspector sees an update this evening.

New in version 1.2:

  • Toggling highlights and killing the favelet will (should) no longer leave elements highlighted. When either of these events occur the element will (should) revert to its original state.
  • Pressing the [v] key while over an element will pop a textarea at the mouse coordinates containing the innerHTML of that element. You are free to modify the HTML in the textarea. A link below the textarea, upon being clicked, will apply the new HTML to that element. Hitting the [esc] key will close the textarea. Hitting [esc] with the textarea closed will kill the favelet as it always has.

I hope the second item proves useful to you - in the very least if can offer you some amusement by allowing you to modify the more popular sites you visit. I tricked Kate into thinking I had been farked (Javascript surrenders).

As always, let me know if you run into any problems, and if the changes aren't showing up for you or it looks strange, clear your cache and reload.


first of all: Great work! I only stumbled upon your site recently but the Mouseover DOM Inspector has already become my most used Favelet.

Now the feedback: I am using Opera 7.5 (Win 2000) and after exiting the HTML-Window it is not possible to get it again or to exit the favelet any more. Only thing that works is reloading the page. Otherwise it works great.

Any fixes?

Hmm...I'm not seeing that on either 2000 or XP with Opera 7.5 - is it happening on all sites? Is there another plugin running on your version of Opera that could be interfering with the key capture event?
