Remote Chromium Web Browser debugging

Introduction

While developing Fulguris which is an Android web browser based on WebView and therefore Chromium I came across a neat feature. You can inspect web pages opened on your Android device from your favourite PC Chromium based web browser, Vivaldi in my case.

Solution

Establish a debug connection between you Android device and your PC workstation, typically over USB. Launch the web browser you want to debug on your Android device. Then just open chrome://inspect/#devices from you PC workstation in a Chromium based web browser. You can now inspect your remote web page from your PC like you would with any other local web page.
