Josh Moont sent me a Chrome extension developed by him, a simple extension to view XML files in a user friendly format - with opening and closing nodes.

The extensions requires Chrome developer version. If you have installed, right click the Chrome icon in your desktop, then click Properties, click Shortcut tab, add --enable-extensions parameter in the Target field, as it is shown in the figure:

Right click the Chrome shortcut icon, and then add -enable-extensions in the Target field

XML Tree extension for Google Chrome is very useful for webmasters and web developers. Example: when I open without XML Tree extension, Chrome shows as below:

After installing XML Tree extension, it shows as below:

Should I install this? Is it better than just doing a "View page source" on the xml page?

I could be wrong, but doesn't appear to work over HTTPS. I'm trying to access a password-protected file over HTTPS and it either doesn't show anything, or it just shows the plain text all joined together.

It's gettin' there though. I'm surprised Google didn't build this in.
