Firebug 1.4 Alpha – Worth It
I had a nice email exchange with one of the guys on the Firebug team recently. Basically, I miss Firebug 1.2 w/ Firefox 2.0, but Firefox 3 has some features I really don’t want to live without. In our email conversation, I shared a laundry list of issues that I’ve observed Firebug 1.3 doing that make my life less awesome.
Anyway, one of the suggestions I got was to upgrade to the alpha version of Firebug 1.4 and, I gotta say, it’s worth it. It’s not quite as solid as things were back on Firefox 2, but it’s way better than Firebug 1.3.
