I've searched for an extension by the name of Inspect Element and cannot find it for the life of me. Would someone be willing to post a direct link here?

Hi Kristen,

Inspect Element isn't an extension. It comes with Chrome. Just follow the link in the notes to download Chrome, then right click (or control click for Macs) to select the Inspect Element tool.

Is it possible this doesn't work on my macbookpro? (I saw on the internet that maybe it worked on safari)
hidama
It doesn't matter which you use, it matters what browser. In the example I was on a MacBook Pro using Chrome.

I recommend in the video to download and use Chrome. Chrome is a browser you can use on any device.

That might just be the coolest thing I have ever seen!

I know, right?!

Right Clicking does not bring the option "Inspect". It only brings up select, select all and paste. What am I doing wrong?
This is an awesome thing if I can get it to work. Thanks!

Hey Kimberly! Are you using the Chrome browser?
