"The remote inspector doesn't work with Chrome."

That's interesting.  It'd be great for any HTML5 (modern) browser to work as a client.

Anyway, thanks for the info.

The remote inspector doesn't work with Chrome. You need to use any
WebKitGTK+ based browser. You can use MiniBrowser or Epiphany.

This approach doesn't always work either, because the inspector uses JavaScript features not supported by other browsers. So, even when using the legacy remote inspector, a WebKit browser is recommended or even required. In this case you could use Safari, though.
