Hello Sergiy,

I've got a bunch of links for different areas where work has been done.

Some information on the "protocol" and is outlined in the following links. I 
don't think they are up to date; I think things have improved and evolved since 
then. Pavel and Ilya may be able to comment more on the protocol since there 
has been quite a bit of work recently splitting it up into different domains to 
turn on/off debugging different "domains" or feature sets. But I think the 
protocol has been stable for a while. I think they even had some discussion 
with the Firebug team when they talked about a debugging protocol, but I can't 
seem to find where that discussion took place.
<http://webkit.org/b/43732> Web Inspector: Remote debugging meta-bug

Here is a screencast, previously posted to this list, of it working in Chromium:

There has been some work on an internal WebKit solution based on Web Sockets:
<http://webkit.org/b/43988> Web Inspector: Remote Web Inspector support for 
QtWebKit [Already Landed]
<http://webkit.org/b/51364> Web Inspector: Remote Web Inspector - Cross 
Platform InspectorServer [Open - Issues to be Worked Out]

External to WebKit, Patrick Mueller has been working on weinre. Patrick is on 
this list and might comment more:
