When developers optimize pages, they automatically click the view source and look at what their competition has done to their pages. Professor X eliminates the need to view source anymore.
Professor X analyzes the current web page and displays the header details at the top of the page. Some of the items included in the extension are:
- Active Links
- Meta Tags (keywords, description, etc.)
- Generator (WordPress, TypePad, etc.)
- CSS code
...and any thing else included in a header of a web page. The author, Stuart Robertson, said he added CSS to allow the site to be more visually stimulating. I definitely agree with this. The site has a good combination of color to look at and focus on specific sections rather quickly.
The extension took seconds to install and after a restart, was up and running. The one thing that would rock is if a toolbar button was installed to activate Professor X.
