Down and Dirty with Chrome Developer Tools

USB Debugging

Remotely debugging allows you the full chrome developer tools enabled within the environment of your remote device. You can remotely debug mobile devices by navigating to chrome://inspect.


Plug your mobile device into your development machine. Check the checkbox Discover USB devices. You may need to authorize the connection on your mobile device. Once authorized, you should see a list of all available inspection targets on your device. Click inspect to launch an instance of the developer tools. Within this instance of the dev tools, all functionality should be available.

If your device and version of chrome support it, a new icon should appear in the very top right of the developer tools. Press this button to enable a screencast from your mobile device to your development machine. Audits
