This tool is now freeware!
Instant Source lets you take a look at a web page's source code, to see how things are done. Also, you can edit HTML directly inside Internet Explorer!
While this has always been possible using the IE View Source command, Instant Source changes the concept entirely, and allows you to view the code for the selected elements instantly, without having to open the entire source.
The program integrates into Internet Explorer and opens a new toolbar window which instantly displays the source code for whatever part of the page you select in the browser window.
Starting from July 2011, we are giving away this utility!

You can even set it to show source code for every element under your cursor, allowing you to quickly peak through the source as your cursor moves across the page.
Instant Source can show all Flash movies, script files (*.JS, *.VBS), style sheets (*.CSS) and images on a page. You can save all external files into the selected folder with a one click.
Why is Internet Explorer's View Source command so inconvenient for viewing HTML?
Instant Source will resolve these problems. It integrates into Internet Explorer, so you don't need to use an external viewer.
Known problems and solution:
Possible with IE8 - if your Internet Explorer crashes on exit, turn off Adobe PDF Link Helper plugin in Tools > Add-ons menu.
