Much of these features are things firebug had that didn’t make it to dev tools and I’ve been waiting a long time for them and it doesn’t seem they’re coming so I am making an official request, because I really miss them ever since firebug doesn’t work anymore.
The other big gripe I have is that the XHR requests don’t show in the console when they happen anymore. They show in the network panel. Which I guess makes more sense but it is less useful for development and I always feel lost and have to sort by source and hope that the ones I wanted to see are on top and most frustrating of all is when I needed to see an ajax request but it didn’t show at all because the network panel wasn’t active until I have opened it at least once that session like really… then I have to redo whatever work was needed to get the XHR request resent, sometimes sending multiple test emails etc and it is just really a pain.
The left hand list of the style editor is also hard to use and I also need to be able to search all files for a text string very easily and I find it extremely frustrating on both fronts the same as the debugger in that regard, it doesn’t easily tell you which file it is in, and you can’t search multiple files for a class name which really that’s the most useful thing to do with it when I am making a change to a site for a client.
Additionally some of the plugins that existed for firebug don’t exist as plugins or features for dev tools. I really don’t like chrome’s dev kit and really liked firebug and I feel like ever since firebug went debunk I’m in some halfway house forbidden from using my full coding powers.
There are some features I find an improvement so I don’t want you to think me ungrateful but these features as the title said are ones I really need addressed.
