I am looking for the same JavaScript functionality (Errors/Warnings/etc.) that the Web Developer add-on for Firefox has. Does such a thing exist and where can I find it?

Any web developer tools for IE6/7? – ricbax Oct 22 '09 at 0:28
As you're only referring to the Web Developer toolbar: you know about that other must-have Firefox add-on, Firebug? – Arjan Oct 22 '09 at 6:37

There is the Developer Toolbar for IE but I doubt it allows you to debug JavaScript.

A better version of which is already integrated in IE 8 (hit F12). It definitely includes debugging functionality for JavaScript, including breakpoints and all:

Internet Explorer 8 Developer Tools

Thanks for the link but a short explanation what exactly it does what interests you would have been easier. I can't install FF at work anyway. – Joey Oct 21 '09 at 17:18
Sorry, basically I am looking for the same functionality to debug JavaScript in IE 6/7/8 – ricbax Oct 22 '09 at 0:30
In that case you're out of luck on IE 6/7 but you can have fun on IE 8 without installing anything additionally. – Joey Oct 22 '09 at 5:43

IE8 has the Developer Tools feature built-in.

You can access it by pressing F12 or the "Developer Tools" entry in the Tools menu.

Firebug Lite has some of the functionality you are looking for.
