There should be keyboard commands for every aspect of developer tools.

If there are already keyboard commands, they should be listed somewhere and easy to find.

Specifically:

Web console: Filter, Clear, Net/CSS/JS/Logging toggles
Inspector: HTML panel, Style Rules, Style Properties

We're talking here about keyboard shortcuts, as opposed to command line commands, right?

Right.

I agree (and there are commands for some – ctrl-H to toggle the HTML panel, ctrl-S for the styles panel).

I don't know how it is for you, but when I use Firebug or Web Inspector, I end up reaching for the mouse *almost* all the time because there are too many keyboard shortcuts. That's part of the reason the command line (when it lands in the developer toolbar) has the potential to be amazingly useful for quick keyboardable access to everything the tools can do.

that said, thinking about shortcuts for more features and how to make those easier to learn than looking at MDN seems like a worthwhile idea.
Summary: more keyboard commands → More keyboard shortcuts
Closing as too old, a bunch of keyboard shortcuts have been added since then. If we have detailed ideas about what new shortcuts to add, we should file new bugs.
