In my previous post I covered debugging methods for both Android and iOS mobile devices, but didn’t touch on Internet Explorer, for devices such as the Windows Surface tablet or Windows phone.

Say hello to Vorlon.js, a Node.js based application developed by a handful of Microsoft developers.

Although an extremely useful tool for debugging on Microsoft devices, Vorlon.js is built in such a way that you can actually use it to remotely load, inspect, test and debug JavaScript running on any device with a web browser.

Using only a single line of code to connect to remote devices, like a Windows Surface tablet, you can show errors and inspect the DOM from the running device on your computer.
