How you can fix IE8’s slow “View Source”

Monday, June 1st, 2009 | Business | 8 Comments

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:

  1. Get into the Developer Tools screen (F12 or Tools->Developer Tools)
  2. File->Customize Internet Explorer View Source (yeah I know, weird)
  3. 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.
