Finally, IE Debugging for Ajax and Javascript

Since I started doing JavaScript and Ajax development I have always been frustrated with the lack of a good debugging tool for Internet Explorer.  Firefox has Firebug, which is outstanding.

I think I may have finally found a solution – http://www.debugbar.com/

This can be a big help for those Ajax calls and JavaScript functions that work in Firefox but just don't seem to work right in IE. 

Some of the features…

  • See every Ajax request, the response headers, and the source code.
  • View all the linked and inline scripts, html, and css in any loaded page.
  • An enhanced JavaScript console
  • HTML check – for validation

There are also some nice extras in there, such as the color picker, window resizing to preset sizes, and the ability to e-mail screen shots when an error occurs.
