IE Developer Tools

I use the IE Developer Tools (or IE Dev Toolbar) almost every day.  I was going to write a post about how to use it but I just discovered today that MSDN already has some great documentation around it.

Here's a good starting point with "Discovering Internet Explorer Developer Tools" - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd565628(v=vs.85).aspx

I would also dive into this article "Debugging Script with the Developer Tools" - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd565625(v=vs.85).aspx.  One of the most common issues asked on the CRM forums are javascript errors.  Debugging with the dev toolbar can help solve a lot of those issues.

Another great feature of the dev toolbar is Profiling javascript which this article talks about in depth - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd565629(v=vs.85).aspx.  This helps analyze the performance of your javascript and since we write a lot of javascript for CRM it can help optimize your form loading experience.
