By YUI TeamJanuary 27, 2007

Joe Hewitt announced the GA release of Firebug 1.0 at Yahoo yesterday.

Note 1/30/07: For the best viewing experience, download the .mp4 version of this video and play it in QuickTime player, VLC or the player of your choice. This downloadable version is slightly higher resolution (480x360) and makes it a little bit easier to see what Joe is doing on the screen. -Eric

Firebug 1.0 hit the wires at Mozilla on Wednesday night and Firebug's author Joe Hewitt of Parakey Inc. stopped by Yahoo! Thursday to debut the new features. Joe was kind enough to let us record his talk, and we're pleased to share that with you in the YUI Theater. Although I use Firebug on a daily basis, this was an eye-opening talk for me — I had no idea how much Firebug was capable of until I saw Joe give the power-user tour.

If you're reading this in a flash-capable viewer, you can check out Joe's talk in the embedded player below:

Update 1/29: Yahoo!'s Lauren Garcia has a nice recap/summary of the talk on her blog.
