Cool! Looks pretty slick, especially for a beta product. Between this and Firefox with the Web Developer extension we're really starting to get somewhere in terms of browser based functionality for the masses.

Oh -- in Firefox (and any other Mozilla-based browser I've seen), the DOM Inspector is a selection you need to make at install time, so you need to select "Custom Installation" and make sure the developer option is selected. Admittedly, the documentation on the download site should make that clear -- I went through a number of versions wondering why MY copy of NS6, NS7, Firefox, whatever, was crippled. Everyone else had (and used) the DOM Inspector -- maybe it was illegal to inspect the DOM in Canada? No -- just a switch I didn't know about.

The Firefox Web Developer Toolbar is still far, far superior to the IE Developer Toolbar. It's cool that it's available, and I've actually found SOME use for it... but the Firefox Toolbar has many, many more features and it laid out so everything is easily available with a click.
