A Look at What’s New in Chrome DevTools in 2020

Although I use Firefox as my primary browser on the laptop and Safari on mobile and tablet, I do still have a lot of love for Chrome because of its Dev Tools capabilities. In this tutorial, Umar takes you through some of the best bits of Chrome Dev tools this year including some that I’ve not seen before relating specifically to accessibility.

Even though Lighthouse has been part of DevTools for a while now (since 2017!), it still deserves a significant mention because of the user-facing features it continues to ship, such as:

  • An audit that checks that anchor elements resolve to their URLs (Fun fact: I worked on this!)
  • An audit that checks whether the Largest Contentful Paint metic is fast enough
  • An audit to warn you of unused JavaScript
