           Summary: New inspector can recursively inspect itself
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://img.skitch.com/20081225-
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Inspector
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: matt at matt-good.net

An interesting "feature" of sorts in the new Web Inspector is that if you right
click in the inspector pane itself and choose Inspect Element you get a second
pane displaying information about the inspector itself (see linked screenshot).
 You can in fact keep doing this recursively on the inspectors, though it
quickly triggers some bugs where the layout breaks and you can no longer resize
the inspectors.  These layout bugs can persist even after closing the inspector
and require restarting WebKit.  So, despite the cool "meta" factor of this it'd
probably be best to disable the behavior.

Otherwise first impressions of the new Web Inspector are great and I hope it
will replace most of my need for Firebug.
