Delayed Firebug Load
Firebug doesn’t slow down Firefox start time anymore since its loaded as soon as the user actually needs it. There are only a few things loaded at the browser start-up time: the main Firebug menu, Firebug start button and inspect menu-item in page context menu.
This also means that Firebug extensions overlaying only the Firebug UI are loaded as soon as Firebug itself is loaded and so, don’t slow down Firefox start-up time too.
However, I believe [such services] could be used as a general weedout mechanism. While I do not believe a 95% truly differentiates someone who scored a 90%, I do believe that someone who scored a 95% is better than someone who scored a 5%. Whenever I ask programming questions during an interview, the goal is not to determine if a candidate is a good programmer or an incredible programmer. The goal is to determine if the programmer is a terrible programmer or not-terrible programmer.
Now all of the browsers have (or will soon have) their own debuggers. Basing next gen work on Firebug is not practical. The pace of change in browsers is too fast for our team size. Firebug hasn’t really been able to keep up with Firefox, let alone compete with other tools. Moreover, the shift from desktop to mobile and from one high-tech browser (Firefox) to three or more requires additional development effort. I think our current drive to re-architect Firebug is on the right track, but I could not obtain another year of support from IBM to contribute to that work.
