This worked for +Dirk Hohndel, maybe it can work for me too: "Dear LazyWeb, is there a way to disable the F12 key in chrome?"

Sure, I can work around it outside of chrome (I just made a desktop shortcut that takes over F12 and turns it into a no-op), but it's annoying.

The F12 key is right above the backspace key on my keyboard, clearly I'm totally spastic and uncontrolled, because when I type (into edit boxes like this) I hit it way too often and bring up the "developer console". After which I randomly start editing the gmail or G+ source code, which usually just ends up killing whatever pithy reply I was editing.

No, "Just be less spastic, Linus" is not the solution.
