View source in safari

Can’t find a way to View Page Source in Safari 6? It’s there, you just have to dig a bit.

No View Source In Safari 6? Oh, There It Is « Lehigh Valley Web Design « J Taylor Design: “Under Safari » Preferences » Advanced, there is a new checkbox option to ‘Show Develop menu in menu bar’ – which is disabled by default. Once enabled, not only can you view the site source, but there are a ton of useful features at your disposal.”

Hello, I'm Evan. I write about tech from my perspective – that of the average 40-something tech geek. You can also find me on Twitter and at my real-life job as a lawyer.    MORE ABOUT ME.


  1. Hi, Evan! I’m not a huge fan of Safari 6. Is it me, or this browser is kind of slow? Developer Tools are not that easy to handle either :(

    • Hey Christian,

      I haven’t really noticed much of a difference in speed, but I’ve never been that perceptive of that sort of thing (except on an old slow netbook, I’ve never noticed Chrome to be as fast as everyone claims, for example). For a long time, I never used Safari, but it is my main browser now because of how well it integrates with the OS and also with Safari on iOS. I love the zoom feature on the Mac, for example, and use it all the time.

      • Finally (!) someone who has the same opinion as I do about Chrome! I was arguing with a friend, about a top of browsers and he claimed Chrome is the best, while I didn’t agree, of course!

  2. Ηeya i am fοr thе first time here.
