questions on features of PHpStorm

Hi,

I'm totally new to Jetbrains and I haven't yet installed PhpStorm yet but I will. I do have some questions though.

1) I noticed this page has instructions on installing debugger for various browsers:
http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/WI/Browser+Debugging+Extensions

But I also notice that there seems to be no xdebugger for Internet Explorer. Is there an xdebugger for IE too? If not, then is it possible to have use both xdebugger and zend debugger so that I will be able to debug in any browser?

2) Does the PhpStorm have a word wrapper?

3)
i) There is some javascript debugger with the WebStorm. So does this javascript debugger work in conjunction with PhpStorm to debug, say, AJAX calls with jQuery or some other JS framework?

ii) In a related question, will this IDE be able to debug with firebug and perhaps IE's internal debugger as an option?

4) I've been using Nusphere's IDE which is great but unfortunately it only works with Windows. I would really like a cross platform IDE. I've was using eclipse but I really don't like their debugger setup where it seems like one has to create a separate entry for each page one wishes to debug. That's a bit of a hassle I think. With Nusphere's debugger I simply press F4 and the debugger starts to work. I hope Jetbrains is as simple.

Thanks so much,
Victor

Does anyone from jetbrains read these threads? I haven't heard a response in awhile. Don't know if this was missed.

Debugging is browser independent. You can use any of the engines.

Yes

You can use Php debugger for server side and js debugger for client side simultaneously.

Our JS debuuger is build for Firefox.
