Security News & Brain Dumps from Xavier Ashe, a Bit9 Client Partner

It's a great tool… and it got ripped off.

Posted by Xavier Ashe on August 24, 2005

I am addicted to a great toolbar for FireFox called the Web Developer Toolbar.  I came across the following entry in Asa Dotzler's Blog and was called to action.  A quick email doesn't take much time.

I just read over at chrispederick.com Blog that an IE developer tool called Web Inspector from a company called AEVITA has totally ripped off his amazing Web Developer Toolbar.

It's one thing to take inspiration from another developer, but to
steal the idea, the icons, and the documentation outright without any
credit is just plain wrong.

If you're a fan of Chris and his hugely valuable Firefox extension, I encourage you to contact Aevita and express your disapproval — especially about the blatant documentation theft.
