Hadn't seen this link for a memory-debugger pop up in the forums so I figured i'd pass it along.

Haven't had a reason to actually use it yet, but it certainly looks impressive.

Indeed. Reminds me of that "rant" Casey had in on of the Q&A or pre stream sessions about how debuggers should help visualize the data of the program etc.
Although at this point in time, I think it would be quite confusing to use when looking at a lot of nested data and accessing different pointers.
Though to be fair, Visual Studio has very similar problems and is a finished product.

There is DDD debugger which is frontend for GDB and others: https://www.gnu.org/software/ddd/
Its focus is representing data structures visually in various ways. For example, here's how linked lists look like in DDD: http://www.cs.angelo.edu/~mmotl/2...dd/html/PICS/ddd-print-output.png

Interesting. I don't use GDB at the moment, but might be worth to try out.
