Requested on twitter here: https://twitter.com/zackster/status/671476332413386752 > @zackster: > > @FirefoxDevTools why are default prototype objects with a count of one > visible? it's kinda redundant noise for web developers ---------- We could optionally filter out anything with a "Prototype" suffix and count of 1, but if there are iframes you get counts of 2 or 3 or more generally numberOfIframes + 1. I guess we could have an option to just filter out all object prototypes. We also have vague plans about enriching the filter language, so we could make a filter string of "-(Prototype AND count < 1)" do the Right Thing(tm) but I think that is a little too much manual work than this request wants and is a bit more niche. ---------------------- Aside: I would definitely want to keep this as an *option* not the default and unchangeable behavior because if these prototypes weren't there then I personally would be confused like "where are all these things that I can verify exist in the console???"
that's exactly what I meant, a few more examples HTMLLinkElementPrototype TextEncoderPrototype HistoryPrototype HTMLDivElementPrototype DOMImplementationPrototype DOMSettableTokenListPrototype HTMLUListElementPrototype CSSStyleDeclarationPrototype HTMLFormElementPrototype Uint16ArrayPrototype being able to sort the columns would also help
