gtkparasite is great for GTK2, but unfortunatelly it can't do GTK3 applications.

Is there any alternative?

If you are looking at all the possibilities that can resolve the problem, I suggest the following link which is about how to port gtkparasite to GTK3. Although it is a bit technical, the effort is successful.

I just did that and thought to report, but there you are :) Patch from comment 5 works great! –  zetah Apr 30 '12 at 15:18
GTK3 is apparently now supported (since Oct 2013...), you need to compile it from source using the ./ --with-gtk=3.0, make and sudo make install. The packaged fedora version still only supports GTK2 though :( –  Wilf Jul 19 at 17:57
