Firebug Alive And Well
Kevin Dangoor from the Mozilla Developer Tools group writes that Jan (Honza) Odvarko is the new leader of Firebug after John J. Barton stepped down from the role. The next Firebug release is coming soon and future releases are being planned, so now is a great time to get involved with Firebug.


Tilt is a fun new Firefox extension focused on creating a 3D visualization of a webpage. Check out the Tilt blog to find out how to install it and get involved.

Zombie Compartments
Sometimes Firefox holds on to memory when it shouldn’t and you end up with a Zombie Compartment. Help us hunt down these zombies and improve Firefox’s memory use. Nicholas Nethercote shows you how to find and report these memory bugs.
