Even though web application development is supported by professional tooling, debugging support is lacking. If one starts to debug a web application, hardly any tooling support exists. Only the core components like server processes and a web browser are exposed. Developers need to manually weave available information together into a single representation while juggling with the various separate tools available. In order to mitigate this distinction, we demonstrate a prototype debugger which combines these core components, exposing a single and unified tool to support a developer.
