Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

Sorry the new native tools are awful.

Chrome dev tools are more stable quite frankyly and are easier to use.

But does Chrome have a 3D DOM viewer yet? What about a responsive design view? What about showing you the paints that are taking place as you play with the page?

Again, each browser has its own developer niceties in certain respects, and you should become familiar with them for the (probably rare) cases they're useful.

As a web dev, I have no idea why anyone would need it. It too much and tbh pretty much everyone in the office think it is a nice gimmick, nothing more.

God if you can't visual a DOM tree in your head, you've got bigger problems.

Half the time if you write the page properly you don't need half of this stuff.

Also testing on devices is the only way to sanely test whether you layout works successfully.

I am familiar with them and Chrome is far more predictable and stable with regards to it's dev tools.

I don't have the JS breakpoints suddenly just stop work (aka Firebug), I don't have random times when the CSS doesn't load on the page.

There is a reason why people and devs have flocked to chrome. It is simply better.
