This is great news. Dom Inspector is one of the most important tools for XUL app and Web development. I'm happy to see some of these older issues being worked on. I don't do much more than simple Web design so it's pretty much good enough for me but I'm sure others will really appreciate the changes.

Two things I miss from DOM Inspector:

1) Alt+D / Ctrl+L to address bar

2) That the right "Object" panel to remember it's last selected view after close (I usually use only "Computed Style" and would like it to be opened by default)

File enhancement-severity bugs for these if you want them.


#3 New UI?

I think the DOM inspector is fantastic.... but I find the UI makes it hard to use. By the time I've expanded the nodeNames enough to see the elements I'm interested in, I have to make the DOM Inspector/Sidebar so wide that I can't see much of the web page!

you could use Ctrl-Shift-I from the page in question and use the main DOM Inspector UI ?
