Focus dev tools on inspect element

On Ctrl+Shift+C you can inspect an element, but for some reason when you click an element the dev tools window doesn't get focused automatically. If you right click and select "Inspect Element" from the context menu the focus changes correctly. This is a small issue but very annoying to work with.

When you press Ctrl + Shift + C, whatever element your cursor is hovering over will be highlighted. As you move the cursor, different elements are highlighted. However, the Developer Tools will only be focused when you have clicked on the element that you want to select with your mouse.
