and examine every step of execution.
Errors at your Fingertips
Nobody likes to see errors in their web pages, but with FireBug
you won't mind as much. FireBug

status bar which tells you if your page is busted. Open up the FireBug

's inspectors let you stroll lazily through the DOM using the familiar hyperlink model of the web. If you see an object reference, you can click it to inspect it.
