I actually just tried it last night and found a step-through debugging 
feature built-in, but was unable to figure out how (or if) it was 
capable of loading a page and pausing the JavaScript by default, which 
meant all the JavaScript was already executed by the time I could access 
the "step over/step into" buttons making them ... as far as I could 
tell, vestigial.  Perhaps this is a separate bug I am having with the 
current iceweasel in sid, or perhaps it is my user error, but without 
the ability to halt the execution of the JavaScript immediately at page 
load there is almost no practical use case for this tool.  Venkman 
allows for loading JavaScript without first automatically executing any 
of it, allowing the *whole* execution to be stepped through from 
immediately at page load to completion, and it provides a more complete 
set of tools for examining object values during execution than this new 
built-in debugger appears to have as well.  Am I wrong? Am I merely not 
using it right?  Has Venkman's functionality completely been replaced 
and I just can't see it, or am I actually just the only one who has 
noticed/cared that it has not?
