Chrome 10 update modifies “Inspector” behavior

Google’s last update to Chrome changed many things, one of them being the “Inspector” functionality.

Before, when editing css in the inspector window, Chrome would autocomplete the property, but not the value. Also, use of the TAB key to selected the auto completed element was not enabled. You had to use the left arrow key.

Now, just like in firebug for FireFox, Chrome autocompletes both property and value, allowing for the TAB key to toggle a correct entry. Speeds up my in browser manipulations quite a bit!

    Nice, it would be great if you could add properties as well though like with firebug. Maybe there is a way, but I haven’t found it, instead have been using a useful extension to do so: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/oelggcmknbjmhkpgjfhakedcfnkgbdpg

    Works for now, just free flow CSS to apply to the page.
