Javascript profiling in IE7…

…cannot be done with the built in dev tools, as I reminded myself today.  I guess my memory painted a fonder picture of the first version of the IE debugger than it deserved.  I’ve been using the IE8 debugger a lot of late as I’m working on a very JS heavy UI targeted primarily at IE users, which has some firebug-esque features, like break points/ profiling etc and I foolishly assumed such things were always there, because a web debugger without these tools wouldn’t be much use..

Anyway turns out all is not lost- after wading through a bunch of rubbish solutions I eventually found  an awesome profiler (for free, of course!) which works with IE 6, 7 & 8!  Check it out- “DynaTrace AJAX Edition

    Lamentably, the free version DOES NOT WORK WITH IE7 !!!
