Hidden Secrets of the Chrome Developer Tools

Speed up your day-to-day web development work

If you use Google Chrome for web development (and if you don’t, you probably should), you have an incredibly powerful set of tools available to you — and you probably had no idea! Watch a quick preview:

Ben Orenstein I was inspired to create this screencast when a coworker blew my mind by investigating a problem with the javascript debugger. I’d been using Chrome and the Dev Tools for over a year, but had no idea what I was missing. Rather than continuing to learn things when someone nonchalantly used a feature, I decided to discover everything all at once. This screencast is packed with everything I wish someone had shown me when I first started using Chrome.
