In the Fuji release, the old JavaScript debugger was removed from the interface. The functionality never quite worked correctly and led to frustration and poor user interface. Since then, a new debugger was written from scratch and as of the Istanbul release it is in the product. The focus is really on usability and performance and I expect that developers will be quite happy to see this new and improved version.
