How can I speed up Developer Console?

Since Salesforce have moved their test execution to be asynchronous in Spring ’13 we are forced to use the Developer Console to see Code Coverage for a single test class.

My issue with this is that for me the Developer Console is really slow and often crashes my browser (using in Chrome and IE7 – pretty much unusable in IE but this is the version we use in the company).

Is there any way to speed this up so it’s actually usable?

I know there’s the idea of Workspaces, which I thought would let me remove some of the tabs at the top (Logs, Heap Dumps, Repository etc.) but I can’t work out how to do that.


To set up perspective you need to load some log first:

Then click on the “Perspective All” button and then navigate to “View Panels”. Turn some off and save new perspective as “New one”.

By the way you can use for example IDE too:
