Screenshots from my browser console? Oh Firefox, you spoil me!

This is awesome, particularly the ability to screenshot specific elements using element-specific flags: Firefox DevTools has now added a screenshot command, so you can take screenshots directly from the Console .@ioctaptceb wrote about the new `:screenshot` functionality in the Console https://t.co/sg3hjvmEQx An early version is in DevEdition, the latest and nicest in @FirefoxNightly 📸 pic.twitter.com/CFQB6vDY7q […]

Oh Firefox, You Little Resource Hog

I love using Firefox as my primary browser. I prefer using it for a variety of reasons. Lately, though, I’ve noticed that it’s become a bit of a resource hog, and I can’t work out why?
