Ctrl+Shift+F at the developer toolbar party

This is my find of the day:
Hit Ctrl + Shift + F when using Chris Pederick’s developer toolbar, or “display element information” under Information. I’m sure I’m so late to this party, that the only ones left are some crying girl with an empty bottle of spirits and a sad sausage swimming in lukewarm water.
Now more seriously: You’ll find a nice summary including attributes, ancestors and children as well as position and style information for every element you roll over.
Of course you can get similar results (depending on what you’re after) with with CSS->View style information, Outline block elements or by using Firebug’s inspector; but it doesn’t claim as much space, and the information is presented very nicely.
