As should be obvious from what I wrote, I'm a .Net developer so my environment is VS.Net debugging against IE. The javascript project is not my primary target, so I don't have, nor do I wish to have, special tools specific to JS. It isn't "stupid" to debug against IE while reading news with IE, as it's a damn web browser. As for your last statement, this is a fucking comment section, not a dissertation, hence the lack of arguments up to your exacting standards.

I just started on a web project that is heavily javascript (even though it's an ASP.Net app). It feels like I stepped back in time 10 years. I'd have code not execute. Why? Some error somewhere in the code that was ignored. I had a typo on a property set somewhere else. No error. Why? Because javascript created a new property with the typo and set *that*. And every change requires me to run the app to see if it works, because I don't have a compiler to check the basics out ahead of time. And then, because I'm debugging an app in one window, when I'd open a new one to read the news, I'd hit other, non-ignored errors on those pages (advertisements) because 90% of commercial pages these days have error-laden javascript because people rarely check for error conditions. Horrible language.

So just use a virtual machine to set all of this up. Set up a VHD in Hyper-V, install Win8.1 and all of your tools to it, and it affects no one else. Alternatively, you may be able to do cloud-based development, since MS has an internet version of VS as well as a cloud DB and storage, but then you may lose the Android stuff.

Maybe the person has a large family. Maybe the person is rich. Maybe the person wants a special room for each kind of drug he wants to indulge on. Maybe the person wants to piss off self-righteous douches. It's part of the luxury of having one's own income and the freedom to do with it at will.

They've got a framework extension for .Net that works similarly, not coincidentally named "Reactive Extensions". The typical sample usage is iterating through a collection of mouse events. The enumeration is observable, so the code can be written as a traditional foreach loop, but the iterator will increment a step every time a mouse event occurs. Simple, yet very powerful, like much of .Net's newer asynchronous constructs.
