Firefox IDE

Jeff Atword read my mind and recently wrote how Firefox is his primary Web Development IDE. And he’s not wrong, what go me thinking about it was the very cool JavaScript debugging support. Magic. Although it’s tough to get OnLoad stuff debugged it a real life saver.

What’s really cool is that the Web is implicitly open source and now with a lot of sites moving towards AJAX, as Tim O’Reilly notes [pdf], there’s an unprecedented amount of production code not just a View Source away, but even better, a Breakpoint away.

The video by firebug creator Joe Hewitt I found in this Ajaxian article is very cool.
