Added a Q to the FAQ about saved breakpoints with the debugger statement. Thanks for your help.
readme faq persistent breakpoints
@georgesnelling Hi George, thank you for the pull request. The new version (0.3.x) of node inspector saves breakpoints in browser's local storage and restores them automatically.
Please let me know if this feature solves your problem. If you still need to put debugger; statements into your code, then it makes sense to update FAQ. However, the answer should state when the breakpoints are restored by node inspector and in which cases it's necessary to use debugger; statement.
I am closing the issue as there was no reply in 4 months.
