Re: Debugging is terribly slow

It is sad but FF has much better performances when GWT debugging is the subject.

I hope that GWT 2.5 will come up with SourceMaps support so debugging will not require any additional plugin. So a new FF versioning approach as well as other incompatibility issues will be solved.

2.5 should come with SuperDevMode, but it'll be experimental. As for SourceMaps, only Chrome supports them for the moment, so SuperDevMode won't really help with debugging in Firefox until the guys at Mozilla finish their SourceMaps work:
It will definitely help with debugging in Chrome though, which currently with the DevMode plugin is both slow (due to sandboxing) and broken (, as well as Chrome for Android, Mobile Safari, and UIWebView-based iOS apps (through or similar means).
When other browsers catch up on SourceMaps, then we can ditch the DevMode plugins entirely.
