Viewing events attached to elements via JavaScript

$('.btnName').live('click', function() {
    //do something

There is a nice little browser extension that will show all the elements on the page with a little bubble outlining the attached events/functions.

    Nice extension!
    Just wanted to note, that Chrome Browser in developer console you can select a DOM node, scroll down on the right-hand side (there is CSS info and stuff) and expand “Event listeners” section to view events attached to the node you have selected.
