Sometimes you come across a library so full of promise and amazingness that you have to write about it before even trying it out.
Really ... was anyone still using that for anything other than debugging? Besides ~~porn ~~phishing sites I mean.
Although blocking execution would actually be kind of useful, alertify.js can fake this with careful use of callback soup and apparently manages to do something to at least prevent clicking on the page. So unless you get an event from a timer or a socket, you can rest assured nothing will happen while the alert is displayed.
It also plays nice with us keyboard maniacs - you can use the ESC key to make a Prompt or Confirm dialog go away.
Another feature I really like are the logging facilities. It's a log you actually won't mind showing to your users! Wonderful.
Then again, for debugging I will probably still be using console.log and ruining my sites for all Internet Explorer users when I forget to remove debugging lines ... with alertify.js it's at least impossible to forget.
Oh and another cool thing, Fabien Doiron implemented the whole thing without jQuery, which I think is just impressive, these days I probably can't do anything without jQuery anymore ...
