Opera Dragonfly takes flight
New beta of Opera developer tools feasts on complex code
Oslo, Norway and Austin, TX, USA - March 14, 2011
Opera Software today launched the first beta of Opera Dragonfly. Opera Dragonfly is an open source suite of debugging tools for web developers and designers. When you download the Opera browser, Opera Dragonfly is built in and loads automatically from the Web.
When your site turns to molasses, turn to Opera Dragonfly's network inspector. Find latency, see how resources download and in what order, and even view cached resources.
One view to bind them all. See all site resources such as images, scripts, fonts, HTML files and videos at a glance.
How does your site handle data it collects? The storage inspector lets you dynamically update and test cookies and HTML5 Web Storage.
Start hunting bugs with Opera Dragonfly beta in four quick steps:
- Enter opera:config#DeveloperTools|DeveloperToolsURL into your address bar.
- Change "Developer Tools URL" to https://dragonfly.opera.com/app/cutting-edge/.
- Click "Save".
- Use the following shortcut to open Opera Dragonfly: Ctrl+Shift+I (Windows and Linux) or âŒ˜+âŒ¥+I (Mac).
"People ask why we chose â€˜Opera Dragonfly" as the name of our developer tools," said David Storey, Chief Web Opener, Opera Software. "Dragonflies eat bugs, and that is exactly what we want it to do for developers around the world. You spend your time making the Web better for everyone. The least we can do is make life easier for you."
