Firebug Working Group Meetup

Category: Debugging

Steve Souders hosted the Firebug Working Group meeting at Google last week, and after seeing how detailed his notes are I wish I could hire him as my personal assistant ;)


Firebug 1.2 is nearing final beta. After testing it’ll be promoted to stable. The main focus for the next release is going to be performance, stability, and testing. Some new features are on the todo list, such as adding new CSS rules, viewing bound DOM event handlers, and exporting CSS changes. More details are available in my notes from the meeting. It’s very exciting to have Mozilla more involved, and bodes well for the future of Firebug.

Firebug to web developers is what a multi-piece spanner or screwdriver set is to a mechanic: fundamental.

To hear that Firebug is getting more pieces in the set is, perhaps going as far as a full tool chest, is like 10 birthdays experienced at once!
