Yah. I had to rant about this a little a while ago (look for list mails around mid-jan 2019, subject ' Refactoring browser loading'). Like you I found several divergent explanations of how to load the tools and mostly they didn't work. Eventually there *is* a way, but yes, I'd concur that they ought to be folded in with the basic tools - and then improved to be less painful to use.

But hey, at least it mentions SqueakMap. (But still you need to know that for the latest Squeak, you need the "Tools", not the "Browser". I'll put the words "Refactoring Tools" on the pages I came across.)
