Firebug is a jQuery console test/debugging tool too!

I thought everyone knew this, but after a chat with a couple of colleagues this week it seems that most don't know that...

...if you use Firebug (in Firefox) on a jQuery-enabled website, Firebug's console can handle jQuery selectors and other jQuery magic.

To see for yourself, make sure you have Firebug installed, then visit the jQuery home page. Ensure that the console is enabled and type the following and hit return:

$('#jq-content').fadeOut()
You should hopefully see most of jQuery's home page gently fade out!

This feature is invaluable when investigating & debugging jQuery javascript code, make sure you install Firebug into Firefox today!

It also works for the Developer Tools in Chrome.
