DOM Explorer Usablity Improvements
I've been useing DOM Explorer to understand complex web pages built by other developers. It's been very handy. But while it's a good start, it has a long way to go to help maximize productivity.
One thing that it could be better at would be to allow me to see instantly see the Layout Tab whenever I make a change in one of the other tabs. Instead, I have to constantly flip back and forth between some tab to the Layout tab.
Many of the windows in the VSIDE can be moved around, floated or docked. I feel that it would be nice to be able to see the Layout Tab while making adjustments to CSS inline styles and attributes. This could be accomplished if the developer could move the tab around at grid within the right side of the DOM Explorer window, just like we can in the main VS IDE.
The other suggestion would be that it might be nice to be able to adjust the style directly in the Layout tab. I believe this tab is only an output tab.
If floating and docked tabs are too much, you could simply put the Layout Tab as it's own area that isn't a tab. It would always display the current element.
