    I installed #Appspector via chrome webstore and after the extension had been added, no icon showed up in the browser.Is there a shortcut key to activate the extension when I want to inspect web framework of a website.
    Lastly please get the end users a [TUTORIAL] on how to use the extension.

    I thought this addon was pretty good until I realised it is reading my own website as “tomatoCMS”. I have no idea what that even is. My whole site is actually jQuery and jQuery mobile.
