Firebug 1.5 available for SeaMonkey 2.0!
The Firebug team just announced that their 1.5 version is now available from the addons-mozilla.org ("AMO") website - and this version even supports SeaMonkey 2.0 now!
You don't believe it? Look here:
Install Firebug 1.5 in SeaMonkey 2.0
I have already tried and installed it from their website before, and I have it just right in my browser windows now! I haven't tried it yet, but it has a few things that look interesting, I surely will dig into it when I have time, I already heard a lot of praise about this development tool from the Firefox world, and now I can even use it!
So, after Lightning, we have another one of the big Mozilla add-ons work in SeaMonkey 2.0 - I hope that's the real start for a solid success story now.
Once again, this has been enabled by someone from our great SeaMonkey community, in this case Jens Hatlak (InvisibleSmiley), thanks a lot for testing and writing up patches for this. Also a big "thank you" to the Firebug team for taking those patches quite fast and even convincing AMO that our application suite is really supported!

…it's kind of sad that with a plain search of "firebug" on <http://addons.mozilla.org/seamonkey/>, Firebug doesn't come up in the results.
I think that's because Firebug is geared only to SM 2.0.1 and upper and the normal search defaults to SM 2.0, but I think that this small glitch will prevent some/many users from actually finding it.
Maybe it would be good if AMO's normal search settings would default to display the plug-ins compatible with the shipping SM version (currently, SM 2.0.2), as opposed to the latest milestone (SM 2.0).
