Chrome DevTools: Block certain requests from a web page, see how a page works without CSS or Javascript

27 Aug 2015
Block certain requests from a web page, see how a page works without CSS or Javascript

Do you know what your web page looks like without CSS or JavaScript? Right click on a resource from a network recording and select 'Block request URL'. This resource is excluded from subsequent page loads.

If you discover your page is unusable without a third-party JavaScript asset, this could be the time to rethink what resources your web page can be truly dependant on.

Warning: This is an experimental feature currently in Canary! Things are likely to change. Some experimental features are removed.
