Using the browser for debugging

The browser allows you to compare rules side by side, and see a list of variables all used in one field type. Often, if you have bug caused by a variable spelled differently in two places, this will often become obvious when using the browser, because you will see two entries where only one should be. In that way, the browser is useful for debugging.

One limitation of the browser is that you can't see a list of requirements and changes mixed in one list. So if you spell a variable one way in requirements and another in changes, the problem will not be obvious in the browser. The
variables list provides a way to do this specific comparison.
