        I’m noticing it a lot on my MacBook while inspecting a fairly large web app. To the point where the whole thing locks up for 5-10 seconds.

        It happens a lot when expanding and collapsing tags. It is also really slow when a lot of the inspected CSS changes from a hover.

        And those rulers are REALLY annoying if you want to align things in those first 8 or so pixels. Is there a way to remove them, because I can’t find one.

        Too bad I’m forced to use Chrome for this. I’d much rather use Firefox.

    Anyone know how to turn this off? This has to be the most annoying thing. Honestly speaking, if I wanted a ruler, I’d go get an extension for it. The fact that chrome force-fed me a ruler in my dearest element inspector has put a sour taste in my mouth.

    Sure, they can be really useful. But they can also be extremely annoying and get in the way. It’s really frustrating that there appears to be no way to turn them off!
