Firebug 1.2 – Good News for Web Devs

ScreenshotIf you’re a Web developer, you likely already know about Firebug – the amazing web development add-in for Firefox. (It was one of our 6 recommended Firefox extensions for web workers). But if you haven’t been following its development blog, you may not know the latest news: Firebug 1.2 has moved from alpha to beta, and it’s ready for Firefox 3.

The new release isn’t just a version port; it’s also got substantial new functionality. This includes a good deal of performance work, better javascript debugging, and a redesigned console. I’ve been using the 1.2 alpha series, and this beta feels very stable to me; if you’re doing any work in Firefox 3 it’s definitely worth grabbing.
