Help IE not suck...as much

Please, please, please chime in at the IE Blog to let developers know that more than Visual Studio Whatever Edition, more than alpha-released Web Developer Toolbars that don't really have much of anything to do with JavaScript, Web Developers need a JavaScript console for Internet Explorer. Especially after using Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc. for so long this seems like such a basic tool that you'd think we just hadn't found where to enable it all these years.

I would prefer the ability to port extensions like Firebug (new 0.4 release!) over to Internet Explorer, but that simply can't and won't happen for a multitude of reasons.

So go tell the Internet Explorer team to make Internet Explorer suck just a little bit less and incorporate a JavaScript console. Either that, or just kill the fucking browser once and for all so none of us have to put up with this shit any longer.

Check out my Web Development Helper addin for IE - it had a script console, and better script diagnostics... early but something nonetheless.

Whoa, a SharePoint site. That brings back some harsh memories...

I've heard good things about WebDevHelper, though I haven't had much luck actually triggering it (or, admittedly, time to give it the ol' college try). Where should I look for documentation? The site seems a bit sparse as far as that goes.
