Firebug Lite is lightweight version of Firebug that does implement only a subset of features (mainly missing the Script and Net panel). It’s implemented as pure web application and running in all major browser. Useful especially for debugging on mobile devices with bigger screens (e.g. iPad). Firebug Lite is also maintained by Firebug Working Group and you can read more about how to start with Firebug Lite.
