Running WATiR On gnu/Debian Linux

Last time I had a dekko at WATiR (Web Application Testing in Ruby) it worked only on Internet Explorer (IE), I didn't think that it was worth an effort to run it on IE under Wine on gnu/Linux.

Now WATiR supports both Firefox and Safari on gnu/Linux and Mac. I was able to install the FireWATiR tool which has a ruby gem and Firefox JSSH(JSSh - a TCP/IP JavaScript Shell Server for Mozilla) plugin on Debian/Sid running Iceweasel (2.0.0.11-1)/Ruby(4.1)/Gems(1.0.1-4) with no problems.

If you are looking for a simple open-source library for automating web browsers on gnu/Debian Linux, you don't have to look any further.
