javascript – How to go to a specific file in Chrome Developer Tools?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I am developing a web application with a heavy front-end approach. By using Dojo and the AMD-way, I currently have testing screens which may easily load over a hundred different javascript files.

When I want to debug for any specific problem, or verify if I am seeing an old version of a specific file, I find it really hard to find my files in the Sources tab in the Chrome Developer Tools.

Is there any shortcut or action I can make that will let me type the name of a file and will take me to the source of that file?

How to solve:

While in the sources tab use CTRL+O (+O for Mac) to search scripts, stylesheets and snippets by filename.

(use CTRL+SHIFT+O to filter/navigate to a JavaScript function/CSS rule when viewing a file)
