When Dev Tools is open, it's currently difficult to get to the first control using the keyboard. You can get to the last control by shift+tabbing from the Address bar. However, getting to the first control requires shift+tabbing through everything else in Dev Tools or tabbing to the end of the web document and then pressing tab once more. I suggest one of two solutions:
1. Make Dev Tools accessible via the f6 key, which is used to switch between main panels. This would be my preference.
2. Put Dev Tools *after* the Address bar in the tab order instead of before. A possible problem is that this gets messy if you have a side bar such as History or Bookmarks open.

Solution 1 would be my preferred way forward, too.
