Project details

A Firebug port or like product for Internet Explorer. See for comparable.

The project would basically be the same thing functionally but for Internet Explorer instead. Firebug is a wonderful program and makes web app development significantly easier with its inline html, css, and javascript editing, debugging, breakpoints, and profiling.

Internet Explorer has nothing that even comes close to this functionally and usably. There are javascript based ports of Firebug, but the are very limited in what you can debug with them since it does not have the same access to the browser and DOM that a plugin would.

Make sure this tool addresses IE6 (IE 5.5 if possible too). Those be the trouble browsers. 17 years ago link

vote to address IE HELL (7.0 transitional, 6.0, 5.5)

This seems nontrivial. I would calculate 50-100 days =>10000$ minimum 17 years ago link is the closest thing. i’d pay for him to keep going. in fact, i can.

DebugBar and [Companion.JS] ( are under active development to port similar firebug features to IE !

DOM inspector, HTPP inspector, css styles, js error detailled.

No yet as great as firebug, but improving on every version :-D

I can already tell you there is a lot of work to develop a tool like firebug under IE…

My proposition is : I get the project as a developer, make is close-source, and people post features as sub-projects, so I can develop them on new releases.

IE8 will come out with this feature. Check out wikipedia article about IE8.
