The Chromium Projects


The DevTools team is an engineering team that maintains the Chrome DevTools - the debugging tools and capabilities offered by Chromium.

Debugging is a critical part of the (Web) Developer's day-to-day workflows, and we firmly believe that a great debugging experience contributes significantly to the overall developer satisfaction and success on the Web.

What We believe

Our mission is to deliver a reliable, relevant, and delightful debugging experience - universally available with Chrome - empowering developers to create helpful Web experiences.
