In order to feature detect resource hinting rels like prefetch, preload, and dns-prefetch, please implement relList and relList.supports as added to the dom spec in https://github.com/whatwg/dom/pull/123 . relList.supports is implemented in current Firefox and Chrome browsers. It is not yet implemented in Safari, but the resource hinting is also not implemented, so feature testing for that is a true negative. However, Edge supports resource hinting, but feature testing is a false negative, which means developers have to resort to User Agent inference or forgo resource hinting, resulting in a slower experience for users.8 votes

This feature would add the ability to dock F12 to the left side of the IE window.
- Extend the current horizontal explorer bar system that F12 uses to cover the vertical scenario
- Additional dropdown for docking to indicate the different options (right, bottom, left)
- No top docking as the explorer bar system doesn't support it (and it's less important as windows are commonly side by side not bottom to top)
- Not mirrored (i.e. no support for RTL)
- Each tool in F12 will have to adjust their layout to cope with the change181 votes
Vertical docking is now in preview with Windows 10 build 17074+. See https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/01/11/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-17074-pc
