It would be great to have conditional breakpoints.  Ie, you could right click on a breakpoint, go 'add condition' and add an expression.  If it evaluates true, the breakpoint is triggered, otherwise it continues.

I find this a really useful feature in a couple of other IDE's, particularly when you want to stop a loop at a certain element.

This feature already exists

FYI, there's no "add condition" command, but you can open the "breakpoint properties" from the context menu and set a condition there.
