Accessing Chome Devtools elements?

Post by mdgairaud » Mon Oct 19, 2015 11:27 am


I need to automate some functionality inside Chrome DevTools that isn't covered with shortcuts.

For example inside DevTools > Network it's impossible to click over an element of the waterfall, get the innertext (or similar) of an item, click start/stop or clear buttons, ...

These operations doesn't have shortcut and the only and unreliable way is clicking by position.

At these moment I have automated some operation with coordinates but I would like a proper way to do it. Is it possible?

It should be enough to enable Chrome Global Accessibility mode. See how to do it here: ... tml#p27734
