While work and life always tend to get in the road, I’ve been plodding slowly along on the DOM Inspector, most recently I’ve been working on bug 255940. This involves removing the horrible dropdown box from the Box Model page and replacing it with a graphical representation (similar to the one found in Firebug). This will then be followed up by allowing people to change which measurement they are viewing in box model viewer.

I’ve also been working locally on a patch to provide some sort of hinting as to what type of property you are viewing in the Javascript object viewer, this basically involves using a list of default properties of each dom object (which I’m using from Firebug) but I think this is the sort of thing that could be standardised so that we aren’t duplicating this code, and it’s always up to date, as new elements are added (Video for example).
