Why only Chrome developer tools?

I noticed that the teachers are using only Chrome developer tools. Is there a special advantage to using Chrome developer tools over say, Safari Dev Tools?

Any browser's tools can be used for most basic purposes, but Chrome's dev tools are by far the most widely used these days. I can't say for sure without having used Safari's tools but I imagine Chrome probably has some / several features that they don't. Why not give them a go and see for yourself?

But to answer your question, for the basic purposes of inspecting HTML / CSS and running basic JavaScript commands, any modern browser should be fine.

I would tend to agree with Ethan in that it has the most features and the features with the widely supported browser.

If I need a basic inspection of HTML and CSS elements I'll alternative between the tools in Chrome and Firefox. :)
