I'd like to see the behavior of the elements tab not expand an <iframe> when clicking 'inspect.' Rather the <iframe> element itself should be selected. The <iframe> could then be opened with a second click somewhere

Iframes are often loaded with markup that, when expanded, take up the entire elements window. This is a bit of a nuisance, since I'm not likely to need to edit the contents of an <iframe>

Pros:
less cluttered elements tab
easier manipulation of the iframe itself
