I installed Xdebug today.
I ran a benchmark first. Result was 4 sec,
After enable Xdebug it was 35 sec.
My PHP was so slow.
I will not use Xdebug. I am sure there are nice features.
But for me not at the expense of speed.
Well you don't use it in production. You use it in development.
Do you use Xdebug youself?
I wonder if there are many using it ....
I've commented on it a couple of times in the past.
I've had it installed on my local dev VM at one time, but it doesn't get used very much ... in fact, I'm not sure that it's still operational there ...
