Everyone knows how much of a pain it is to debug and test stuff in IE - especially for cross browser compatability and JS/AJAX errors or callbacks.

For development purposes - the following company provide a few nice solutions that could help with developing web applications in a number of versions of Internet Explorer.

DebugBar DebugBar: Is a toolbar which offers HTML DOM Tree view, HTTP and HTTPS Headers, page cookies view, HTML validation, JS Methods view, JS Execution etc. for Internet Explorer.

Companion.JS Companion.JS: Javascript debugger for IE - with detailed error reporting, Firebug like console logging, Javascript object inspection - enough said.

Last but not least...

IETester IETester: Allows for the rendering of web pages using the rendering and Javascript engines of IE5.5, IE6, IE7 and IE8 on Windows and Vista.

These are probably worth checking out as a solution to aid development and testing within Internet Explorer.

New ColdFusion Debugger

ColdFusion , Javascript , Testing , Website Optimization No Comments »

Well, not so new, but version 1.0 of Coldfire has just been released.

It plugs into the Firebug Firefox extension and works a treat.

If you write any sort of complex Javascript, you really need Firebug. It allows step-through debugging and variable watching etc. Coldfire plugs into it and displays all the usual debugging information in a much better format.

It also allows you to watch ColdFusion variables as the request is executed.
