Debugging Javascript

I just thought I should mention that Opera often gives very useful error notices. Sometimes Firefox gives more useful one’s, like in this case missing : after case whereas Opera only informed me of a parsing error on the same line. Internet Explorer doesn’t add much useful information in it’s “error-console” (which doesn’t even exist in a similar sense which makes it even harder to use).

I wonder how I can forget a : and not even notice it. I guess I was just convinced I didn’t forget something that simple. Ah well…

If you’re wondering what this is about, I’ll probably write something about it when it’s all over, which is in about two weeks. Essentially it’s a UI demonstration which I wrote in HTML+CSS+Javascript, which most people would probably have created in Flash.

Why do I post this if I actually said nothing at all? I don’t know, I think I just needed a break. Should I have taken it away from the computer? Yes. But in 30 minutes, that’s exactly what I’ll do. Besides I got gold on the first race of the last grand prix of Burnout 2 about 1.5 hours ago.
