Crossfire is a Firebug extension which implements a JSON protocol to allow remote clients (like an IDE or code editor) to connect to Firebug.

Who is using Crossfire ?

One of the main goals of Crossfire is to provide a simple and straight-forward method for tools in other processes to obtain the same kind of information that Firebug has about the Web pages the user is debugging.

  • The Firebug Working Group is currently planning to use Crossfire in future versions of Firebug as a solution for the out-of-process plugin architecture of Firefox 4.
  • The 8.0 beta version of IBM's Rational Application Developer is using Crossfire to enhance their existing Firebug integration. [1] Demo video
