First the JavaScript Debugger, in the next beta you'll probably notice that this wont be listed in the Window menu. Not to worry though! We plan on reimplementing it for the next release (which we're currently referring to as 5.5.1).

One of the reasons we're holding off is because we're looking at using Drosera (<http://webkit.opendarwin.org/blog/?p=61>), this would require us to update WebKit which we're also planning on doing in this same release.
 
I know it's been a long time coming. WebKit still has a few problems but we're getting closer to pushing out another update that will add support for Drosera as well as the many other enhancements that have been made since our build of WebKit.
 
Now that Drosera is included in the Sneaky Peeks, are there any docs on how to get it working?
 
Actually it isn't included inside of OmniWeb, we just support it now. You need to grab it from a WebKit nighly:

http://nightly.webkit.org/

Once you launch Drosera with OmniWeb running already there will be the option to attach to OmniWeb, do so and you're set.
 
I've used Drosera with the 5.6 SPs, and it works fine for the most part.
 
Ok so what is it and why would it benefit me lol

About Drosera

Drosera is a JavaScript debugger for WebKit that can be used with any application that uses WebKit. Like the Web Inspector, over 90% of it is written in HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

ref: http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/Drosera

"Drosera has been replaced by an improved debugger built into the Web Inspector. The information this page still applies to Safari 3.1 and 3.0. If you need to debug javascript in those versions of Safari, you can obtain Drosera from nightly build r33431 on OS X and r33029 on Windows."

Unfortunately, this last release of stand-alone Drosera crashes at launch on my 10.5.2 Mac.
 
Same here I'm sure one of these will launch but I haven't found the right one yet.
 
Okay update, it looks like it might your drosera preferences. Try trashing:

~/Library/Preferences/org.webkit.Drosera.plist

And see if the problem goes away.
