How To View Source HTML In Safari Under Mavericks

Remember the good old days when Safari had a ‘View Source’ option in its menu? It’s now gone as default but here’s how to get it back:

1. Go to Safari Preferences / Advanced, then check the box ‘Show Develop menu in menu bar’ then close your preferences.

2. You’ll see that there’s now a Develop menu in Safari:


3. Go to the Develop menu and select ‘Show Page Source’:


4. That’s it – the Safari Web Inspector comes up and off you go. To remove it just select ‘Close Web Inspector’ from the same Develop menu in Safari.

Hope that helps!
