As you may know from the Desktop team blog
, we're planning to include the developer console in future Opera editions. Over on dev.opera
, we released the tools separately
: a DOM Console, CSS Editor and DOM Snapshot.
But before these tools go live in the browser, we need your feedback. What works well, what doesn't, what tools do you need to make your jobs easier? What we have now represent the first step, and far from our last, but we want to make sure we're doing our best to give you what you need.
So joining us this week is Christian Krebs
, with whom you spoke last year
, and Helmers
. These are the two masterminds behind the tools. Swing on by this Thursday at 5:00 PM CET (check the local time where you live
) over on our usual channel: #webapps
See you there!

For a while now we've promised to put more tools in the hands of developers. We want to make it easier for you to create and debug sites and applications right in your Opera browser. Over on dev.opera
, we have released our first set of tools
for you to download. The Web Apps team has used these tools for a while now, and we hope you like them as much as we do.
The current crop of tools includes:
- A Live DOM console to edit and inspect various aspect of a page
- A Live CSS editor to display stylesheets attached to a page. Further, the tools allows live editing of a page's CSS, including modifying, adding and deleting style rules on-the-fly. These edited stylesheets can be exported for later use.
- A DOM snapshot to inspect the source of a page, as parsed by the browser.
This is our first step, and far from our last. We have much more planned. But as with all early releases, we want your feedback on the tools. What should we include and what can we improve to make your work faster, easier, more efficient, and more standards-compliant?
