The tools were introduced in the Google Chrome developer channel. Chrome is the company’s entrant in the browser market.
“[During] the last few weeks, Google Chrome’s developer tools have become much more useful,” said Pavel Feldman, a software engineer at Google, and Anders Sandholm, a Google product manager, in a blog post.
The company’s tools for Chrome are partially based on the WebKit browser engine. Google also has put together a Web site focused on Chrome developer tools, featuring tutorials and videos. The company also has improved the Web Inspector tool for testing of Chrome Web sites. Improvements were made in areas such as editing and CSS accommodations.
