Glance DOM
Glance is a simple way to reference elements in the DOM. It’s intention and hope is to keep you from needing to look at the DOM in order to gain a handle to an element. However, if you do inspect the DOM (for example to grab a class or an id off of an element) then referencing elements by classes and id’s are supported too.
To best understand how it works, experimenting with it goes a long way. You can learn how to read Glance by playing a game… Come Take A Glance. Learn even more at

If you want to use Glance DOM in your Browser simply include it in a ``<script>`` tag on your page as shown below and then use it as shown below in example-script.js
    <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="example-script.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

And then in your ``example-script.js`` file you can find the element that contains "click me" by executing the following:
var element = glanceDOM("click me");
