Firebug Debugger

Posted on by

Joe Hewitt is working on updating his excellent Firebug Firefox extension. If you’re not familiar with it, you should be. It provides detailed per-page error tracking, XMLHTTPRequest tracking, DOM Navigation – everything that a Javascript developer needs.

The new version of Firebug is adding one more feature: Javascript debugging. This will allow you to set break points in your code, pause the application, restart it, and all sorts of cool stuff. If this sounds interesting to you, you should contact Joe, as he needs testers to help him get this off the ground.

    Joe’s site seems to be a little under the weather right now…I’ll check back later for sure.

  2. I agree, FireBug is awesome. The first night I downloaded it, it probably saved me an hour of debugging time (for AJAX stuff).

    There is already some basic JavaScript debugging (writing to the FireBug console, etc.) that is pretty good. Can’t wait to see his new shtuff. :) (his site is still down though)
