View Full Version : Freeware JavaScript Debuggers?

05-30-2007, 09:14 PM
Greetings Earthlings,

Does anyone know of any good, reliable freeware JavaScript debggers available?

I've heard mixed reviews/suggestions on this topic, so I've not yet resolved to try any one in particular so far.

Any good input much appreciated.

If you are using Firefox, try Firebug. That's all you need. One of the best tool

I agree with the this opinion completely. You need only Firebug, which is natively based on Mozilla Firefox browser but I think there is some method in Firebug using which you can even debug your script in IE environment.

Aptana (http://www.aptana.com) is one of the best JavaScript IDE available today. It is an open source tool which can be downloaded freely and has a good debugging and auto completion features.

You can find large number of JavaScript debuggers as Mozilla FireFox add-ons and it is quite difficult to get quality script debuggers like FireBug in IE environment.

Hope this helps

also for firefox there is an extension called "web developer" that has a lot of different tools for use on the web... css / javascript / images / forms / resize etcetc...

The while it doesn't have a quite all of the features of Firebug in terms of javascript, it does give you the javascript error / warning console so you can tell where an error occured. It also lets you know if you are running in "quirks" or "standards" mode :)
