  • IE 8: Dev Tools - An Introduction with John Hrvatin

    I scanned through the interview but I couldn't find any video demonstration of the new Developer Tools, I'd like to see an IE team member demonstrate the CSS editing features because when I use it, it just seems like a complete, non-functional mess. I would rather use the original IE Developer Toolbar for editing CSS, hopefully I'm just missing something with the new tool.

    Fixed.


    Thanks.

    Although I still see "indexOf(" Firefox/")" in one of the ScriptResource.axd files


    All our browser detection is done on the server.  The javascript you're looking at is probably from Silverlight.


    Well, why not fix that too? Then I could watch the videos. Smiley

    I use firefox 3 RC1 and the thread list works fine


    What's the UA string for the RC? I'm using a nightly.

    Because this is on the C9 beta:

    if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf(" Firefox/")>-1){Sys.Browser.agent=Sys.Browser.Firefox;

    That should probably be something like:

    if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf(" Gecko/")>-1)

    "Managed tag pages are more of a guide for a topic that someone who is in charge of it has decided is the right content."

    I just had another look at the tag pages to understand how they work. I think it would make more sense to "sticky" any recommended content to the top of a list (and make it stand out), rather than provide an alternate page view and hide all the other relevant content.

    There's currently no consistency when you go from the Internet Explorer tag page and then to the Silverlight tag page. Talk about a usability nightmare.

    On another note, the fonts tend to change their appearance significantly depending on their size, colour and weight. It makes it pretty difficult to read. It looks like a Vista font.

    You still get your straight filtered list of videos (right in the what's new area) but you can also see recommended or featured content along the upper right. We have more planned for the managed tag pages, but for now I hope this gives you an idea of what is to come in that area.

    Have you thought about just slapping user ratings on content?

    Well I think everything including UI, customisability, RSS, Favourites, Security, etc, had been covered just as much as CSS support before these videos, it doesn't make sense to exclude the (X)HTML and CSS areas when everything else has been covered too.

    Yes I did notice what you said about CSS in the first video and I understand the stance the IE team is taking, which is fair enough.

    The feedback you give us really helps us prioritise the work ahead.


    Feedback: Fix every single (X)HTML and CSS bug that has been reported on Connect, then add support for every damn part of CSS1, 2 and 2.1 that you can manage. XHTML support would be great too eventually.

    Did you know IE doesn't support something as simple as the Q tag? It would also be great to use inherit for text fields, etc, etc, etc...

    I want to see at least as much CSS support that Firefox or Opera offers currently.
