This is a use case reported by a Web developer in South Korea.
The question I asked of you was how to pause debugger while focusing on web browser not devtool itself.
For now, I have to focus devtool window to pause debugger,
However on Chrome, I can pause debugger to press F8 button even if the browser is focused.
The scenario is
- Open the debugger devtools
- Go to a webpage, and interact with the content
- Hit a key for setting a pause of the debugger at this moment
The debugger is paused on the current code being executed
not possible at all.
You need to switch back to the debugger to hit pause, and then come back to the browser window. But this means, you will likely not be in the right context when it is finally pausing (think hover interactions for example.)
On Chrome, this feature is available through F8.
