 To start with, actors are living within /devtools/server/actors/ folder.
 They are organized in a hierarchy for easier lifecycle/memory management:
 once a parent is removed from the pool, its children are removed as well.
 (See actor-registration.md for more information about how to implement one)
 The overall hierarchy of actors looks like this:
-  RootActor: First one, automatically instantiated when we start connecting.

 ## RootActor
 The root actor is special. It is automatically created when a client connects.
 It has a special `actorID` which is unique and is "root".
 All other actors have an `actorID` which is computed dynamically,
 so that you need to ask an existing actor to create an Actor
 and returns its `actorID`. That's the main role of RootActor.

 ## "TabActor"
 Those are the actors exposed by the root actors which are meant to track the
 lifetime of a given context: tab, app, process, add-on, or worker. It also
 allows to fetch the tab-scoped actors connected to this context. Actors like
 console, inspector, thread (for debugger), styleinspector, etc. Most of them
 inherit from TabActor (defined in tab.js) which is document centric. It
