Quick HTML Edit Tool Bar For IE

Quick Edit Bar



HTML Quick Edit Bar - is a freeware toolbar for Microsoft Internet Explorer that allows you to edit the current HTML page within the browser itself (change the font color, size and face, text alignment, etc.). Once edited, HTML Quick Edit Bar allows you to upload the modified page to your web site via FTP. Another feature allows you to examine and manipulate the HTML tree (which will appear in the left pane of the browser) of the current document. Using this tree, you can change and remove HTML tags and their attributes. Dragging a special cursor over the page's HTML elements, enables you to observe the place of these elements in the tree. HTML Quick Edit Bar can be useful for anyone who uses Microsoft Internet Explorer, as it allows you to modify and examine HTML documents "on the fly" when browsing.
