IE Developer toolbar rocks

Just downloaded the latest beta of the IE Developer toolbar, and I must say it seriously rocks....


I've been using previous versions for a while now, and have found it extremely helpful in debugging styling problems, but this version goes to the next level. I haven't had a good chance to put it through it's paces yet, but I'm sure the "Style Trace" functionality will prove indispensable. It'll be interesting to see what will be in the final version of this product, they may even start to challenge firefox as the "Developers preferred browser", although I think they still have a way to go there.

Web Directions North gets the nod of approval from Microsoft Luminaries

Just read a post on PeterL's blog, about Web Directions North. I went to the Web Directions South conference myself. Here's my wrap up of the Aussie version, although I must admit that my post doesn't do it justice, the event is well worth attending, and will challenge the way you think about the web.


Warning: if you do anything of note during a session, you'll probably see yourself used as an example of the power of web 2.0 as the speaker pulls down the flickr image of you minutes after the event.
