Firebug 1.0 is final

Jeroen van Wilgenburg

The best thing after sliced bread has reached a new milestone, version 1.0. Firebug is a great tool for HTML, DOM and especially Javascript. A lot of people from AMIS saw my demonstration on the last academy and most of them were quite surprised by its possibilities. Together with the Firefox web developer toolbar web development became so much easier.

 

One thing to keep in mind when you’re a 0.4 user: 

In Firebug 0.4 there was an "Events" tab, but I can't find it in Firebug 1.0.

The "Events" tab has been replaced with the ability to log events to the "Console" tab.
Right click on an Element and you will see the "Log Events" menu item. Check that,
and then you will see the events on the console.

 

A while ago a wrote a blog about firebug. At that time the tool was already very usable and had a lot of features. Take a look at that blog and the documentation of Firebug and you know enough to make very advanced pages. When you’re doing more with Javascript than onmouseover and onmouseout you have to download Firebug.

 

Oh and stop calling me Mr. Dojo 😉
