WebKit's Web Inspector is similar to Firefox's Firebug plug-in. Developers can use the inspector to add and edit note attributes. The Web Inspector can also create or edit CSS Rules and Selectors. Developers can access the Web Inspector by checking "Show Develop menu in menu bar" under the Preferences' Advanced tab.
Formerly known as the Databases Panel, the Storage Panel lets developers monitor DOM Storage. The panel has live updating so you don't have to refresh the window constantly. The Storage Panel also displays Cookie information, which can be edited or deleted.
The new Event Listeners Sidebar Pane lists events by type. There are also new filters in the Event Listeners' Gear Menu. The filters can allow users to only see listeners that are registered on a selected note or the entire event flow. Event Listeners can be displayed in Web Inspector.
WebKit Nightly Builds can be downloaded for Mac OS X and Windows. WebKit is licensed under the LGPL and BSD licenses.
