[RESOLVED]Is there any other development tool ( F12) available for IE 11.x?

The default development tool that comes with IE 11.x is good but too slow to load and frequently hangs up my laptop with 6 GB memory. This development tool comes up when user presses the F12 key.

Is there any other development tool  that I can use with IE 11.x which is faster and quickly loads up?

Well then that’s a problem with your OS I guess. Probably a virus or something. In my home I have an i3 laptop with 2GB memory and IE11 developer tools work fine there. Could you try by installing recommended windows updates? And also, please check your
PC for viruses too. I think there is a performance issue in your PC?

Apart from Ruchira’s suggestion i also want to add some alternatives for F12 Developer Toolbar:

DebugBar

Also i suggest go thru the below stack overflow url for the same discussion:

There is no such problem on my computer.  I already have an anti-virus running always and also the developer tool in FireFox works very fast and never freezes/hangs up my computer.

So that leads me to believe that the IE 11 developer tool is slow.

Now when I was using IE 8, then the developer tool was very fast.

I downloaded DebugBar but its not possible to debug JavaScript with it.  I installed Companion tool with it but I still cannot debug script using DebugBar. So it seems it cannot replace the IE developer tool and is not a good/viable option.

I was able to speed up the developer tool in IE 11 by doing something very simple.

  • Go to Tools >Manage add-ons and disable all add-ons.
  • Then close all your currently opened IE windows, and open a new IE window.  You can now open the developer tool by pressing F12 key and you will find it to be very responsive and fast.

After above two steps, the developer tool in IE 11 became tremendously fast and never caused my computer screen to freeze/hangup.
