Inline Code Finder

Inline Code Finder is a tool to traverse through all elements in a web page, and when it finds a HTML element with any of these, it will highlight them:
  • Inline JavaScript events
  • Inline style
  • javascript: links
In terms of inline events and javascript: links, it is generally frowned upon, and should instead be implemented in an unobtrusive fashion. A picture of google.com when Inline Code Finder is enabled

More information and a summary report

When you hover over an element with an inline event, inline styling or a javascript: link, it will show you more information about it:
