View Selection Source in Google Chrome
By on February 10th, 2010

View Selection Source is a very handy feature in Firefox, which allows you to view the HTML source code for only the selected content. This can come in pretty handy, when you want to view the HTML source for only a certain part of the page, or want to view HTML source of AJAX content without having to view the entire source or debugging AJAX requests using another add-on.

If you are user, you can use a new called View Selection Source to get the same functionality in Chrome. To view selection source, just select the area for which you want to view the source for and click on the "View Selection Source" icon in the toolbar.

Techie Buzz Verdict

View Selection Source is definitely a handy extension for developers and designers. It will save you time when you want to see the style used for only a section. However, this add-on does not work for AJAX content, so it would be good if the developer would add support to view source for dynamic content on a webpage.

Rating: 3.5/5 (Good)

    This is not exactly true. The extension works on DOM level — it takes the page's current DOM and displays the selected elements no matter whether they were created dynamically (ie. loaded by Ajax) or were already present in the original HTML source.
