What makes a web browser most efficient – user-friendliness or developer-friendliness? Google Chrome has always believed that browsers are for mass use and so, has added lots of useful apps to offer a pleasant user-experience. However, Mozilla Firefox, favors “coding-friendly” features.
The command line works just like the way people use “Ctrl+F” command. The only difference is that instead of words, it helps you search a particular programming element faster. For instance, if you type “inspect h3” and click return, an inspector panel will open displaying all the H3 tags in the page.
It offers 16 inbuilt commands and some of them are- “resize” for responsive design, “pagemod” for online editing and “cookie” for inspecting cookies. Console, inspector and debugger buttons offer one click access to all the elements behind the layout of a web page.
These new tools are certainly very helpful for newbie programmers, but they also break the boundaries of professional ethics. Introduction of developer toolbar will encourage code copycats. After all, if everything is easily available, why should someone spend hours to create a great banner or menu bar?
