Visual Studio offers a reasonable debugger for IE. Not as a good as Firebug, though (and obviously you'll need to buy a license).

IE8 (and 9) have pretty good debug tools. There is also Firebug Lite, which is embeddable: http://getfirebug.com/firebuglite

If you ask me, the best way to debug your application is to write unit tests for it ;)

In IE8 and IE9, just hit F12. It opens the IE Developer Toolbar.
Not as good as firebug or the webkit inspector, but enough for debug tasks.

IE8 and IE9 have IE7 rendering engines embeded. You can choose how you want to render your page and make all the tests you need.

You could also check out Stacktrace - https://github.com/emwendelin/javascript-stacktrace

It'll work in almost any browser and lets you view a stacktrace based on an error (or anything else you specify). It's basically alert(debugMessage); on steroids, but it's a whole lot more useful.
