xScope: measure, align and inspect

A little gem from our friends of the Iconfactory: xScope

I've been spending the last few days tweaking CSS, trying to overcome the current browser's discrepancies in order to follow the W3C recommendations as closely as possible. But as you know, it's not a piece of cake..

I used Snapz Pro to capture screen areas, and Photoshop to measure the pixels separating one rendering from another. Until I discovered xScope (thanks Enrique). I wasn't using for an hour, that I logged onto their site to purchase it. It's not only a set of rulers, you can place guides, frames, change your cursor into a crosshair, magnify selected areas of your screen or easily see the usable real estate for any screen size, browser, for Mac or Windows - a dream.

If you design, need to measure, align and inspect on-screen graphics and layouts, xScope is today's answer.

I have been contemplating the idea of upgrading my desktop Mac since this spring. The latest 27" iMac (Quad-Core) seemed the perfect candidate, but the release of Apple's 27" Monitor last September made me stick with the Mac Pro...


The autopsy of an iconic album cover picked up on A stacked graph of successive radio signals from pulsar CP 1919, in a 1977 astronomy encyclopedia that originated in a 1970 Ph.D. thesis. Fascinating <3...
