XRAY: Amazing, Instant Info on Web Elements

When you’re designing a Web page in QuarkXPress, you sometimes need to know the exact measurements and structure of an existing page on the Internet. Westciv’s XRAY is a free bookmarklet for Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and other Web browsers that lets you see the underlying structure of any Web page.

XRAY: Amazing, Instant Info on Web Elements

Just click on XRAY and then click on any item on a Web page. A floating window appears that displays all the essential information about that item: its location, size, margin, padding, CSS class, and much more. It’s an extremely easy way to study a Web page design, or grab the dimensions of an item.

XRAY is a “bookmarklet”. To install it, you just drag it onto the Bookmarks bar of your Web browser. Strange, but true.
