Being working on a JQuery application, running in firefox, the last few months. It works great. But now, I need to run the application with other browsers. If it works, then great. If it doesn't.... then... what other debuggers are available?

Or more specifically, what debuggers do you recommend?

Thanks,
Henry

IE8 has a debugger built into it, Chrome does too, Safari can do some basics.

To follow up.... IE's debugger is not bad.

I can't really get Opera's logger working -- meaning none of the console.log() output is going to someplace that I can see. Any pointers with this would be great.

And as for Safari, I can't even find the debugger. Help...

Opera


Safari [windows]:
From the command line navigate to where safari is located and run

I definitely have to say that the four browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and Opera, are so different -- there are bugs that appear in some but not in others. Of course, nothing appears in firefox, but that could just be because the app was developed in firefox and all the weird bugs (that appear in FF but not in others have already been debugged).

It is also cool having four debuggers -- you can confirm an error condition by cross checking. It also gives a better feeling of stability, or the priority of the bug, based on which browser (or how many) have an issue with it.

Fun bugs are when they occur on one computer and not on another.
