Added a console with evaluation support to the inspector.

UX improvements to icons and coloring for visual debugging actions.
Added rich tooltips to visual debugging actions that provide a more detailed explanation of their functionality as well as a link to documentation to learn more.

You can manually refresh the timeline events in the timeline event chart by clicking the “Refresh timeline events” button:
