Analyze, and modify Web pages with this flexible, comprehensive Internet Explorer add-on. IEWatch's toolbar and spreadsheet-style interface places extension information under every Web site you choose. Anyone familiar with standard database buttons will catch on to this program's functions. A well-written help file includes quick start guides.
IEWatch isn't going to present conclusions; this is a fact-gathering tool. The program simply captures HTTP data as it is sent to your IE browser and displays the information in easy-to-read logs and charts under the normal Web page. Numerous functions help you determine where page items are stored, which items take the longest to load, and how cookies are used. Each function is opened in real time with the simple click of a tab, or link in the log. After a page has loaded, you can use the tool to analyze HTML code. Switching over is instantaneous, but you have to reload the page. Page items are helpfully listed by type. Clicking an item in the list highlights it on the Web page and you can quickly modify the code by entering HTML or script code on another tab.
Tabs and functions are arranged intuitively for experienced Web designers. The information presented is what most programmers need to study and improve their pages. The program installs and operates easily, but its functions are not more extensive than similar, but less expensive, tools. Nevertheless, Web page coders should give this well-designed tool a test. Some may find it exactly fits their needs.
