Here is a great tool for those of us who do a lot of JavaScripting, or ECMAscripting as the case may be. Firebug is, you guessed it, a JavaScript debugger plug-in for Firefox created by jow Hewitt. One thing cool about Firebug is that is shows allows you to inspect the finalized parsed code, this is really helpful if you are trying to style output from APIs and scripts such as Flickr, Delicious, or Upcoming.org, etc. If you do a lot of JavaScripting and deal with a lot of bugs, you may also want to check out Bugzilla, the bug tracking software created by the Mozilla folks.
