Omnibug's History

Omnibug Released

Omnibug was released in July 2008 by Ross Simpson for Firefox. Omnibug was built as an extension to the then-widely popular Firefox add-on Firebug, as the Firefox developer tools did not exist at the time. It was originally built to debug Omniture SiteCatalyst, now Adobe Analytics, network calls. The name originates from these tools, "Omniture SiteCatalyst" and "Firebug".
