I +1 all this.
The "live" debugger is heavenly. A real lifesaver.
I'm coming to enjoy the testing tool a lot also - really nice to click on a
failing test and be sent right to the source line.
If you have a multi-monitor setup, the ability to arrange your tools and
windows independently is powerful.
Wing is one of those "Just Works" tools. I've been using the v4 beta for more
than a month now. It's solid.
