Firebug in IE: Debugging JavaScript in Internet Explorer

Dec 6th, 2008 | By sguler | Category: Javascript

I have been using the firebug extension of Mozilla Firefox for a while to debug my javascript applications. It is so handy, useful, tricky and excellent. You can check what your script is doing on the html, see all the reflections of your code and as a result, it helps you find the errors on your javascript code. So if you are new to this, please read the details on firebug site and add the firebug extension to your Mozilla Firefox.

For some IE bugs and differences, you may not see the IE reflection of your javascript code rendered in Mozilla, so you better see the test results using the internet explorer. I’ve googled if there is any kind of program doing that and the firebug was the answer again. According to Google’s results, there is the firebug lite, which you can include inside your website’s head tags and have the same firebug extension in Mozilla, in Internet Explorer.

Firebug Lite Usage

Just add the following code inside your page’s head tags and launch it using Internet Explorer. Firebug console must be visible at the bottom of the page.

<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
