FEATURE REQUEST - Dockable dev tools?


As the title explains, I was just curious as to why you guys have removed the ability to dock dev tools? I wouldve thought the base chromium source code wouldve had a dockable dev tools already built in.

Anyway currently its the only thing stopping me from using brave as my default browser as I’m a web dev and using it very regularly and its a pain in the ass having to deal with another window each time instead of it just sliding onto the current page. Also if I have several opened pages and dev tools running for each, you can imagine it would get unmanageable very quickly.


Developer tools only opening in new window
Javascript console

Hi @elude,

The team not removed the ability. It’s a limitation from electron, IIRC. And the team is working to make it dock-able. :slight_smile:
