Showing source in Firefox

Annoyed that Firefox pops up the source of a page in a separate window when you View Source? Annoyed that Epiphany shows the source of a page in Gedit? Help is at hand! Simply drag the following link to your bookmarklet bar: Toggle source Clicking it will replace the page you’re viewing with that page’s source, nicely syntax-highlighted, in the same browser tab. Clicking it again will go back to the page. That should keep Sean Middleditch happy and stop complaints about Epiphany using Gedit as an HTML viewer. (Warning: I don’t know what happens if you do this on a page where you’ve just posted some data, like if you’ve just placed an Amazon order or something. Don’t do that.)

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
