Chrome DevTools: Using the Blackboxing feature for better debugging sessions

5 January 2017
Using the Blackboxing feature for better debugging sessions

I'm giving a workshop on Browser Automation with WebDriver. London, 18th May.

The Blackboxing feature of Chrome DevTools can help hide scripts from your debugging sessions.

If you blackbox framework.js, stepping functions like Step In/Step Out etc. will skip over framework.js.

Even third-party code which throws exceptions can be hidden if you wish.

Check out this blackboxing demo with jQuery I showed a while back.

Update: CSS Selector Long Hover is in Chrome Stable!
