Press ESC to close Developer Console Navigation Trick

I never thought that working in browser can be more fun than Eclipse IDE. But my thinking is changing these days, first became my favorite playground for any HTML/Javascript research and now I felt Developer Console is way more convenient and faster to work as compared to Eclipse, reasons:

  1. No need to checkout project and wait for metadata download to start.

  2. No need to update/sync the project, you are always working on latest copy.

  3. Save is pretty fast too, and thankfully “CTRL + S” works here also.

  4. Developer console remembers the last opened files, when launched again.

The Trick !

Apart from the above, I figured a small trick that makes it even more easier to work with Developer Console. Here is a video that shows the trick in action

Always looking forward to those.

    I expect the Developer Console will eventually bypass (dare I say eclipse?!) the Force IDE plugin in terms of speed, features and usability. How do you think the Developer Console can fit into the workflow for git users?

    Hey Jev,Developer console can bypass eclipse in terms of speed for checking out the project and all those sync issues. I am working for consulting company and I need to work on different projects/orgs, so its much easier for me to quickly open dev. console and get my job done.But yes, for deployments and stuff like GIT, Eclipse still has a big scope.
