Debugging and Inspecting Pages with Developer Tools

  • Matthew Crowley


The developer tools provide a wide variety of utilities that can help you inspect and debug markup, layout, styles, and script in your pages. These tools aren’t designed to replace a full development environment—they are, however, a great way to ensure your pages display and behave the way you intended. Beyond the inspection and debugging capabilities of the HTML, CSS, and Script tabs, the JavaScript profiler provides some great insight into performance improvements you can make to your pages as well. In the next chapter I cover ways you can use the Fiddler web debugging proxy to gain further insight into the way your web application interacts with IE’s network and caching layers.
