It would be nice to be able to open the debugger in a tab and work on it like a normal webpage.


Here are some notes from a convseration with Alex.

  • about:devtools-toolbox?type=process will open a browser toolbox in a tab

it only works for the netmonitor: chrome://devtools/content/netmonitor/index.html?type=tab&id=21474837308

The pattern in the replace about:devtools-toolbox with panel's URL. The main issue is that you have to go through about:debugging to get the id of things
The query parameter are working thanks to such piece of code:

Similar code used to exists for the inspector:

The one for the console never landed:
