Developer tools only opening in new window

  • i. open any tab
  • ii. enter the shortcut to open developer tools (Command + Option + J)
  • iii. Developer tools opens in a new tab and there seems to be no way to be bring it into the main window

The reason this is an issue is that I work with multiple applications in full windows when developing and an extra window for developer tools just seems like a nuisance. Also, because it is in a window of its own, when I switch to a different tab, it remains which is quite annoying.

There should be a way to at least toggle developer tools windows.
