I installed Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) on my main machine a few weeks ago, and have been using other browser’s “View Source” since IE8’s default View Source editor takes forever to load.
With all the work, I didn’t have time to figure out how to fix it, but YOU CAN!
IE8 uses an internal viewer by default, but you can easily change it:
- Get into the Developer Tools screen (F12 or Tools->Developer Tools)
- File->Customize Internet Explorer View Source (yeah I know, weird)
- Set to Notepad (like it used to be) or “Other” and use your viewer (I used TextPad)
Now, can anyone recommend a better “View Source” application? I haven’t looked into this, but it may be a great opportunity to improve efficiency doing HTML and debugging.
