Team member here. Firefox Replay is currently in user research phase while we validate it.

Cross platform support will absolutely be a priority when Replay is on the official roadmap.

Thanks for the feedback, firefox-replay.com is also a work in progress. We did not plan an official release today.

We'll be sure to make the Mac OS limitation more clear.

Here is some more context on the mac specific functionality (https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/recordr...).

> Firefox Replay is currently in user research phase while we validate it

A question about how you develop / roll this out. Do you keep the code private, or do you commit it to the open source repo as you're working with a small amount high touch users?

I guess the question is do you want a full working product when you open source it? Do you tie your PR / forum posts with publicly shipping the source code? Or is all development out in the open?

Good question.

Everything is in firefox and open source

Here are the bugs: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?cmdtype=runnamed&na...

Here's the primary directory: https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/recordr...

The debugger API is implemented in JS here https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/devtools/server...

Thanks for the clarification and for building this great-sounding tool. I'm really looking forward to trying this out on Windows!

What benefits it provides than record and playback using a screen recorder?

Based on the linked MDN page (from the current top-rated comment) it sounds like the main point of this is to have a rewind-able debugger.

Retroactive logging.
