IE8 Developer tools
2009-06-18 09:50:00 +0200
firebug ie8

As noted in twitter and on IE blog IE8 has a new "developer tools" that is accessible by the key F12. Also they have included:

  • console.log
  • console.info
  • console.warn
  • console.error
  • console.assert

as can be seen on msdn.

When you're debugging javascript this is really sweet. If you have seen these methods before, then it might be because you're developing in firebug.

IE8 is looking hot. The inclusion of Developer tools in this release of IE, developing modern javascript is easier. Before this, developing javascript without firebug was a hassle. I'm going to try to set breakpoints and such (a thing that was notoriously problematic in visual studio when you're debugging javascript). So conclusion: IE8 a great step forward for IE.
