Details

Some Web sites go through a sequence of document.write(), it fully creates a new debugging context and makes it impossible to understand the transition which led us to the final state. 

Sometimes when analyzing we need to be able to stop at each script before they go away because of document.write().

Opera Dragonfly had such a feature which was quite useful in these specific cases.

(Or maybe there's another way of doing that and I will be glad if you slap me with a URI)

Similar to this, pausing on new scripts is useful for debugging workers and other places that parse/evaluate scripts faster than a breakpoint can be set.
