Inside the DOM Panel you get information about all the different DOM properties and methods. For objects and arrays it offers a expandable tree view. Clicking on them limits the display of the DOM tree to these objects resp. arrays and shows the current element path as breadcrumb list inside the Panel Toolbar. Clicking on a function jumps to it inside the Script Panel. Note, that the panel shows a snapshot of the current state. Changes to properties don't take effect on the display of the DOM panel until you are refreshing it.
