What's New In DevTools (Chrome 95)

New CSS length authoring tools

DevTools added an easier yet flexible way to update lengths in CSS!

In the Styles pane, look for any CSS property with length (e.g. height, padding).

Hover over the unit type, and notice the unit type is underlined. Click on it to select a unit type from the dropdown.

Hover over the unit value, and your mouse pointer is changed to horizontal cursor. Drag horizontally to increase or decrease the value. To adjust the value by 10, hold the Shift key when dragging.

You can still edit the unit value as text — just click on the value and start editing.

In the Issues tab, hover over on an issue you would like to hide. Click on More options   More   > Hide issues like this.

Improved the display of properties

DevTools improve the display of properties by:

  • Always bold and sort own properties first in the Console, Sources panel and Properties pane.
  • Flatten the properties display in the Properties pane.

For example, the snippet below creates an URL object link with 2 own properties: user and access, and updates the value of an inherited property search.

/* example.js */

const link = new URL('https://goo.gle/devtools-blog');

link.user = { id: 1, name: 'Jane Doe' };
link.access = 'admin';
link.search = `?access=${link.access}`;

Try logging link in the Console. Own properties are now bold and sorted first. These changes make it easier to spot custom properties, especially for Web APIs (e.g. URL) with many inherited properties.

Own properties are bold and sorted first

Apart from these changes, the properties in the Properties pane are also flattened now for better DOM properties debugging experience, especially for Web components.
