On my main computer I recently updated to a newer version of my Chrome browser. It’s my default browser. It’s fast, It’s lightweight and it has incredible developer tools that allow me to scour websites for information when I’m building Custom Facebook Business Pages. Or at least it used to.
The latest version changed the way Developer Tools worked.
Here’s the OLD version
I was easily able to pull up a website, click on the Resources Tab, sort to any of the basic elements (like Images) then even sort by load time or file size. It was an incredible tool that saved me gobs of time.
As of my newest update those options are gone. Here’s the same Tab and as you can see there’s no submenu (Documents, Stylesheets, Images…) there’s no way to sort by size or time, and the displayed results are very different.
ACK! So Chrome version “9.0.597.19 beta” just killed what was once a beautiful tool? The old screen shot? It’s from another laptop running an older version of Chrome (Ver. 8.0.552.224)
I tried to find an answer (yeah I searched Google for it) only to find others with the same question. Next I found a download of older versions: http://www.filehippo.com/download_google_chrome/history/ and downloaded an older version which then automatically updated to the newest version. ACK!!
I’m still looking for answers and wondering if anyone else has this issue or has a solution. If and when I find one, I’ll post the solution. Got any ideas?

- “Chrome browser will sandbox Flash player” and related posts (tips.vlaurie.com)
- Google built an MSI Installer to let IT administrators easily deploy the Chrome browser on computers (robbiz1978.blogspot.com)
