- generate XPaths while browsing or inspecting HTML/XML/*ML documents
- evaluate your XPaths and inspect the results

XPather is a simple Firefox extension that integrates both with the browser and its DOMInspector. It is designed to be lightweight and cross-platform. It is valuable mainly as a web/XML-app development and debugging tool. In combination with the DOMInspector, which I can also highly recommend, it is particularly useful for developing WebTest scripts: right-click in any element of a page that you want your script to compare or set, and the option "Show in XPather" pops up a new window with the precise XPath to select that element.
