nice stack, Firebug

One of the nice UI features of Firebug is that it goes to great lengths to give functions a recognisable description.

Sometimes it even goes too far… :

  1. :)it's probably using some simple regex string matching to find out the name of the function, something like:.*functions+(.*)(

  2. Now that i think about it, this could be used as a feature :)You could use this to name anonymous inline functions in your code on the fly, something like this:// function addToWaitList()jQuery.readyList.push ( function () {return f…So this function would (presumably) show up in the stack trace as addToWaitList instead of (no name) 🙂
