What is the "Inspect Element" feature in Google Chrome?

What is the Inspect Element feature in Google chrome and how can I benefit from it? When in the Inspect Element window if I click the Resource tab it doesn't show me any load times. How can I use this feature effectively?

"Inspect Element is Chrome's version of Firebug. It's not quite as full-featured, but it is still a very useful tool.

Make sure that the Resource tab is enabled - if it isn't, you won't be getting any load times. Click the big ""Enable resource tracking"" button."

Inspect Element allows you to inspect whichever HTML element is closest to the area you clicked just like the Firefox extension firebug. If you want to see timings you have to enable resource tracking permanently, it should prompt you for this.
