Improved DOM breadcrumbs

An improved breadcrumb trail for the DOM

Did you know the Elements Panel has a Breadcrumb trail? It can help you trace your steps when you navigate the DOM.

In Canary, you can enable the Material Design experiment. A few nice things:

  • The breadcrumb trail looks better from a visual point of view.
  • The trail has improved visibility with it being nearer to the top, rather than at the bottom where it is easy to forget about.
  • Overall, the DevTools UI feels more consistent.

Don't forget, you can click each "crumb" within the breadcrumb trail. Doing this highlights the relevant DOM node in the DOM tree view.
