Computer Rulers, Favelets

Zeldman’s Daily Report mentions centricle’s handy ruler favelet. I haven’t gotten it to work in IE6 with my PC, but maybe I’m missing something. Sounds like it could be useful.

Speaking of rulers, though, for years I’ve been using Fabsoft’s free Cool Ruler with my design and development work. It will measure horizontal or vertical by pixels, inches, centimeters, or whatever you wish. It’s only available for PCs, though.
