Display the dimensions of web images within Safari Web Browsers
I've never noticed this before, I think this is new to either Safari v1.1 or Safari v1.2. Anyway, if you've ever wanted to know the size of an image on a web page without downloading it and looking at it in Preview (something I do every now and then), there's a really easy way to do it.

If you open the image in a new window in Safari (which can be done through the contextual menu if it's on an open web page), the title of the window (or tab) now shows the image size in pixels.

[robg adds: I believe this is new in Safari 1.2, and it basically makes this hint somewhat redundant, although the referenced script will also tell you the file size of the displayed image.]

This also works in IE.

To my knowledge, this should be categorized as a reverse hint, or Safari only hint.

IE has done this forever, Mozilla (now Firefox) has always and (though I no longer have it loaded anywhere to test) I think Old Netscape always did as well.
(Are we *sure* old Safari didn't do this?)

Good luck!

I wrote a bookmarklet that will iterate through the current page and all of its sub-frames, displaying a list of all the images along with ther dimensions and urls in another window:

It was based on a simpler version posted in a comment here a week or two ago. Safari seems to have a few issues with javascript and complext nested frames, but overall it works well.
