Assumptions:

  • Chrome doesn't have Cause but has Type and Initiator
  • Cause is often redundant with Type (which also has more detail)

Airtable XHR requests

Proposed information hierarchy would be 1st Initiator stack and 2nd Cause, which leads to the following formatting:

  • Without stack: cause
  • With stack: location.js:line:column (cause)

This already expects that (cause) and longer locations will overflow on small spaces; which should be OK as the initial filename + tooltip should still be enough to orient yourself.

Decision

Accepted the proposed cause/location.js:line:column (cause) format.
