Description

News for HTML5 mobile developers: the remote DOM inspector tool weinre is no longer restricted to Webkit-based browsers and can be used with Internet Explorer 10 or Firefox, thanks to the community contribution with technical support from Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc.

Weinre (WEb INspector REmote) is a debugging tool addressing the challenge of testing and troubleshooting web pages on mobile devices. It is part of the Apache Cordova projects and intends to help developers debugging their mobile web page or Cordova-based mobile apps on actual device. It allows doing DOM inspection remotely and generally makes it way easier to validate that an HTML5 page will render and behave properly on actual devices.

Check out the video below to see a short demo of weinre used to debug an HTML5-based application on Windows Phone 8.

The 'Friends' and 'Circles' features can provide a stratigraphic schematic of  networks for the world's benevolent ITU.  Facebook's brilliant template utilization for developers and users, is integral to the broadcasting of Planet Earth's natives.
