How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Watches can be evaluated when not at a breakpoint ("24x7 watches")

This feature would add the ability to inspect JavaScript objects via the watches pane, even when not broken (paused) in the debugger.

Proposed Design
- All watch expressions will be evaluated at the global scope
- Watches will only be re-evaluated when the debugger breaks (and then on subsequent steps)
- A refresh button will be added to the pane command strip and to the context menu in order to enable the developer to force all the expressions to be re-evaluated
- Will have side effects (e.g. getters will be called in order to evaluate the watch expression)
