Hey, don't know if MS Edge took the dev tools from Chrome or both of them took it from Chromium, but you should stop advertising it as 'Chrome Dev Tools'. MS Edge has them too and I use MS Edge. You are basically an advertisement to Chrome. I think you should also mention Edge and other browsers with the same quality Dev Tools(here Edge has same quality, as the Dev Tools are the same xD) and you should not have the title as 'Chrome Dev Tools'

MS Edge is made with Chromium, which is a Google sponsored open source source. Chrome is also made with Chromium. "Chrome Dev Tools" is the commonly used name for the dev tools that were originally made for Google Chrome. They have been since adapted by other browsers as best practice.
Hence the naming "Chrome Dev Tools" is entirely correct even if you prefer to use another browser.
Please remember, the browser wars are over. There was no winner.

KK, I was confused weather or not Edge copied it from Chrome.
