Looks like we are getting a JavaScript debugger in WebKit.

Over at Surfin' Safari Dave Hyatt has announced Drosera—a JavaScript debugger.

I think it is safe to say Drosera is not ready for the prime time yet. For example the variables table doesn't work. But it does show a lot of potential.

I am particularly excited by this:

"attach and debug JavaScript for any WebKit application"

This should make debugging Dashboard widgets a lot easier. Hopefully I won't feel like bashing my head against a brick wall next time I have to debug a widget.

Like you, I was excited about the prospect of using Drosera to debug Dashboard Widgets, but I haven't figured out how to get the debugger to attach to the appropriate process. Have you done this successfully?
