There was a context menu with a "Inspect Element" item http://trac.webkit.org/attachment/wiki/HackingWebInspector/inspect.png
There is no context menu any more.
Alt+Cmd+I works in Chromium, but not in Safari.
We only show the context menu item in Debug and Release builds — not shipping Safari versions. It confuses users when it is there. And soon Command-Option-I will toggle the Inspector in Safari, so that isn't suitable.
Basically only developers need to do this, and showing it in Debug and Release builds is the right answer.
Although I agree the context menu item shouldn’t be in shipping Safari version, I don’t see it in neither WebKit nightly nor ToT build that I run via Tools/Scripts/run-safari.
Ah, I was wrong. It is only allowed in Debug builds. Here is the code:
To enable it locally, do this in Terminal and relaunch Safari:
defaults write com.apple.Safari "__WebInspectorPageGroup__.WebKit2DeveloperExtrasEnabled" -bool true
It works, thanks! I didn’t know there is such a difference between debug and release builds.
