NitobiBug is a browser-based, cross-browser JavaScript object logger script.

Using this debugger, you can inspect a JavaScript object to discover its members and the values of those members.

JavaScript Debugging Tool

NitobiBug intelligently discerns simple types like strings, booleans, and numbers, from complex objects like error messages and objects.

For example, to inspect an object:

var myDomObject = document.getElementById('someID');

is enough. It will present you the results in a pop-up like draggable, expandable interface.

As there are nice tools for debugging like Firebug but few are cross browser, NitobiBug works on the following browsers:

  • Internet Explorer 6+
  • Firefox 1+
  • Safari (Only tested 3+)
  • Opera 8+

JavaScript Form Validation

  • & more..

P.S. Thanks to Dan for the suggestion.

Bomomo is a Flash JavaScript drawing application which is not totally under your control.

With some moving objects, you can choose between different object & animation types and it will draw figures due to your selections and mouse movements.

Flash Drawing Application

Bomomo works only in Firefox.

It is a very different application that can create random graphics which can be used in patterns or textures or just to be inspired from them.

On the other hand, if you would like to check some beautiful work built with Flash & randomness, you must definitely check the portfolio of Joshua Davis who uses random algorithms within Flash to create professional designs.
