Firebug Lite 1.3 and Google Chrome Extension

Pedro Simonetti just moved Firebug Lite 1.3 to beta. As a bonus he created a Google Chrome Extension version to make it a bit easier to use.

Firebug Lite for Google Chrome helps developers check their pages developed on Firefox for issues specific to Google Chrome, or to study Web pages that look different on the two browsers. The Lite version does not support the Net panel nor does it support Javascript debugging.

Firebug Lite is a pure Web based version of Firebug, built on a different code base than the Firefox version. In addition to Pedro’s major improvements,  he has also been evolving the code to bring it closer to the Firefox version. Eventually we hope to combine the Lite code with a new Firebug frontend for mobile and remote debugging based on a standard web debug protocol.

If you are a Google Chrome user, check out Pedro’s new release.
