Object Model Browser v3.0 RC

This is, simply put, an HTML file that can view and alter the internals of the browser's Document Object Model. It takes a browser object (e.g. 'window.document', and it indexes and sorts all child objects, properties, and event handlers. You can browse around by clicking links to its children, and it displays the values of all properties and objects. It can be embedded in an IFrame, opened by another window, open windows itself, or even has optional IE context-menu support. Whichever way you choose, it helps considerably in debugging and developing DHTML designs, by walking through their construction.

Note that this is perpetually in beta, and definitely has bugs as some objects simply can't be evaluated without crashing the page. I've implemented workarounds, so it should be at least usable in most common browsers.
