Opera Dragonfly – alternative to Firebug for Opera?

Opera Dragonfly seems interesting, in a weird nobody-cares-but-the-perfectionist-web-developer way. I don’t know anyone that still uses Opera (I never did), and I don’t usually get complaints from Opera users on sites that I manage, so I’m not sure how useful this could be.

Still, seems kind of cool and provides some of the features that exist in Firebug for Opera users.

FirePHP – Debugging PHP applications with Firebug

FirePHP Screenshot

FirePHP seems like a very cool project, allowing PHP developers to debug applications without having to disrupt the normal process of a script. It works by sending the debug content to the browser in special HTTP headers, and the Firefox extension add-on to Firebug will parse those and display them in a special panel within Firebug.

It’s so useful I’m going to install this right now. I can’t believe nobody else thought about doing this before!
