I'm not a developer but my experiences poking around in Komodo is that it's not really designed specifically for the JavaScript developers. It does have nice editing tools for a dozen or so languages including JavaScript. So, for example, it has syntax highlighting and coloring, background (dynamic) syntax checking, code folding/collapsing and a few other niceties like commenting and uncommenting blocks of code. But even the editor is not as complete for JS as it is for Perl, Python, Tcl, PHP and XSLT which have nice autocomplete, function searches, and calltips. And JavaScript doesn't appear to be supported in the debugger which looks to me to be much more focused on Python, Perl and PHP and XSLT.

So you're probably correct that for JS debugging that Venkman is "the only game in town". One more example of a great XUL based app :)
