Im trying to see if all the links in my mobile optimised site have the recommended 44px as a hit area.

Currently im doing this by taking a screenshot and measuring it with a graphics program which is making incremental changes slow. Is there a browser add that can show you on the page how large areas are?

Simple addon for measurment is MeasureIt, it's available for FireFox, Chrome and Safari. It shows a simple overlaying square that calculates dimensions of selected area in pixels.

Greenshot is another free (and very useful) screenshot utility that displays coordinates and area information in pixels. (I have it mapped to the PrtScn button on my system -- extremely convenient.)

And IIRC, Chrome's version of firebug (click F12), shows a ruler bar of some sort. I can't recall how interactive it is though.
