Description

It should be possible to set a breakpoint for a specific property within the DOM tree.

The script execution will then be halted when the related property value is changed or the property is removed.

This looks like a dupe of 1252280.  I hope it's added soon, it's a great tool in Chrome.

I just closed bug 1252280 as a dupe of bug 1004678. They were both about breakpoints on DOM mutations.
However this bug seems to be about DOM node property changes.

Just to be clear, this bug is about being able to set breakpoints for properties shown within the DOM panel, allowing you to stop the script execution on any variable change.
Bug 1004678 is about setting breakpoints within the Inspector panel, i.e. for changes on the HTML/XML/SVG nodes shown in there.
