Chrome Gets “Remote Debugging” On It’s Developer Tools

This post is probably a “developers only” post. Or small time web tweakers like me who does  a little bit of coding for their own  blogs. So, here is how you can try the new Remote Debugging tool on Chrome.

  • Run the Chrome instance that you will be debugging remotely with the remote debuggingcommand line switch: chrome.exe –remote-debugging-port=9222 –user-data-dir=remote-profile. It is essential that you use a different instance of Chrome for the remote session and that is why we run it with the –user-data-dir argument.
  • Navigate to the pages you intend to debug.
  • Now run a regular (client) Chrome instance and navigate to http://localhost:9222 there.

So developers, here is the full info from the Chromium Blog Post. Have Fun !
