What you need to know

  • Microsoft Edge has a DOM 3D feature to try out.
  • The feature allows developers to see a 3D render of websites.
  • The feature is inspired by Firefox Tilt.

Developers can now see 3D renders of websites thanks to a new feature on the Canary and Dev versions of Microsoft Edge (via OnMSFT). The DOM 3D view renders a website in 3D, which allows developers to identify certain bugs. The render also shows how a website is layered.

The Microsoft Edge Dev Tools Twitter account shared the feature and showed it off with a short GIF.

The feature requires users to both enable developer mode and to turn on the DOM 3D view specifically.

This feature is experimental, so there's always a chance that it could be removed or that it won't work well. For now, though, developers have an additional tool to analyze webpages.
