How to set breakpoints in inline Javascript in Google Chrome?

When I open Developer Tools in Google Chrome, I see all kinds of features like Profiles, Timelines, and Audits, but basic functionality like being able to set breakpoints both in js files and within html and javascript code is missing! I tried to use the javascript console, which itself is buggy - for example, once it encounters a JS error, I cannot get out of it unless I refresh the whole page. Can someone help?

Answer

Use the sources tab, you can set breakpoints in JavaScript there. In the directory tree underneath it (with the up and down arrow in it), you can select the file you want to debug. You can get out of an error by pressing resume on the right-hand side of the same tab.
