Chrome DevTools vs Ghost Inspector: What are the differences?

Developers describe Chrome DevTools as "A set of web developer tools". It is a set of web developer tools built directly into the Google Chrome browser. It can help you edit pages on-the-fly and diagnose problems quickly, which ultimately helps you build better websites, faster. On the other hand, Ghost Inspector is detailed as "Automated website testing. Record yourself browsing once. Replay it continuously from the cloud". Ghost Inspector lets you create and manage UI tests that check specific functionality in your website or application. We execute these automated browser tests continuously from the cloud and alert you if anything breaks.

Chrome DevTools and Ghost Inspector can be primarily classified as "In-Browser Testing" tools.
