The Block edit module provides inline (on mouseover) editing capability for any block or node.
Configure block/menu/node settings directly by clicking a Views' style link above the block/node.
Where appropriate you are returned to the originating page so it provides a very simplified and intuitive workflow.
A full list of links and options provided by this module are listed below.
- Configure - Configure the settings for the block.
- Edit menu - Edit the title and description of the menu.
- List links - Edit the links in the menu.

Block edit module also fixes Views' edit links by setting their width to auto to avoid breaking the layout on hover.
Block edit links will only work out-of-the-box for themes where blocks are themed so that containing divs have class attributes in the form class="block" for blocks and class="node" for nodes. Most themes on drupal.org are done this way so it shouldn't be a problem.
Drupal 7: There probably won't be a port of this module to Drupal 7 as the functionality already exists in core as the contextual module!
