A simple guide to using Firebug

Category: Articles, Utility

Phil Rees has written up a nice introduction to Firebug, showing us how you can use Firebug to:

  • Inspect custom stylesheets included by Google Mashup Editor
  • Modify in-memory stylesheets to see the changes reflected immediately
  • Place watches and breakpoints into running JavaScript
  • Execute arbitrary JavaScript in the context of your running application
  • Monitor Ajax calls, showing response times, posted content, and results
  • Profile JavaScript functions to help you identify bottlenecks and optimize your application.

The article walks through all of these points using Phil’s DanceMaps mashup using the Google Mashup Editor.
