Why is My Sources Tab Slightly Different Than in the Video?

My sources tab is very slightly different from the one in the video. For example, when Joel clicked on the purple "listItem", the browser switched to console view with what he clicked highlighted. My listItem is black just like the text around it, and it does not hyperlink to the exact spot in the console. Also, my breakpoint begins one line in front of his.

What could be going on here? Do you think this could be because of Chrome updates since the video was made?

Thanks,

Kevin

Yes, absolutely, Chrome updates their dev tools pretty frequently, and much to everyone's delight, they tend to be useful updates. Sometimes they change the look, but it's normally pretty minor. There is also really good documentation on the Internet for nearly everything in the tools, make sure you use Google heavily when you come across something in the tools you don't understand, Chrome dev tools are a lifesaver.
