When you face a complex problem from a developer point of view, this plugin gives you many useful information to understand what happens better. Thanks!

Useful, but not quite future proof.

This an extremely useful plugin, but with one major caveat.

I make full use of all of PHP 5.3's more powerful features - like closures (which I generally use to load files in hook callbacks). The problem is, if you use a closure while running this plugin, it completely breaks WordPress (as in, you get a fatal error and have to delete the plugin to get WordPress working again).

The reason is the plugin's use of the serialize() function. Unfortunately, PHP does not allow for closures ("anonymous functions") to be serialized. You'll get the error "Serialization of 'Closure' is not allowed"...

Bummer.

Has proven to be indispensable

I've come to install this plugin (along with Debug-Bar) on every project in an effort to write better code. The feature I enjoy most about Debug-Bar-Extender is the profiler as it helps you to really understand where potential bottlenecks may be at any point in the execution stack. There's so much to love about this plugin.
