I don't have access to VS (can you say "cheapskate"?), and neither
Firebug nor Opera give me enough info to know what's going on - or maybe
I'm just lousy at using them. Got anything else?
Before stealing (er studying) the code, you might want to consider the
source. Do you really want to mimic their design?
Absolutely not! I want to improve upon it ( la Greasemonkey, or maybe
an XPI) - but first I have to understand it.
What if the author is a lunatic?
Based on what I've seen so far, I'm already convinced that he is. ;-)

It sounds like you are lousy at using them.

All the more reason to ignore whatever he did.

Except that Firebug doesn't provide backtrace functionality, which is what
it sounds like the OP is looking for. It would be a even more of a godsend
if it did, though. :)

thnx,

If you mean the synonym of stack trace: Yes, it does. Actually, JavaScript
provides this feature all by itself already, with the `stack' string
property of Error objects. But Firebug allows you to click the item in the
displayed stack trace and jump to the corresponding function.

It is :)
