Firebug 1.5.0

Posted by Ric Roberts on .

I'm a bit slow of the mark with this one (this post has been sitting in
draft for a while), but I just wanted to draw attention to the release
of Firebug 1.5.0

last month.

If you don't already use Firebug (or similar tools such as Webkit
Inspector) for debugging your JavaScript, I strongly suggest adding them
to your armory. I'm not sure I could survive without breakpoints,
step-through debugging, an interactive console, and the ability to
inspect and manipulate the DOM. :)

The full release notes for Firebug 1.5.0 are on the Firebug
but highlights include:

  • Mike Radcliffe’s Inspector. A key feature, now solid as a rock,
  • Jan ‘Honza’ Odvarko’s expanded and refined Net panel, with accurate timings,
  • Steve Roussey’s reworking of HTML editing and entity support,
  • Kevin Decker’s CSS and Style side panel improvements,
  • Support for dynamic, graphical breakpoints through out Firebug.
  • Tested support for the soon-to-be-released Firefox 3.6
