To add to this: The WebKit Web Inspector frontend frequently adopts many features soon after they are added to trunk WebKit / JavaScriptCore. Some of these features may not be implemented / supported by other browsers, including Chrome. We make no effort to ensure the frontend is cross browser compatibility given we are writing it only for WebKit.

One example off the top of my head is we use `-webkit-canvas()` for popovers. I don't think any other browser implements this. In fact I think Chrome/Blink removed it years ago.
