The Firebug Velocity demo will feature new features in the Net panel, new comprehensive breakpoint support, and a sneek peek at our next version. In Firebug 1.5 we reimplemented the Net panel to dramatically improve the timing accuracy and to support exporting the traffic analysis info. The export format was designed to be compatible with HTTPWatch. We added breakpoint support from every panel: I'll demo using Javascript breakpoints from XHR events and Cookies. Firebug 1.6 integrates Firebug extensions to give you a jolt of new features all pretested with Firebug.
