Stage 1: Definition

1. Feature overview

We have a number of improvements to the Web Console that were developed at the end of the Firefox 4/5 cycle. The goal of this project is to get those features finished up and in the product.

The most common complaint about the Web Console during the Firefox 4 beta cycle is the inability to move the console around (people either want it in a separate window or at the bottom of the window).

We would also like to see some autocompletion improvements and ideally land the console service that would allow messages to queue up before the user opens the console.

Finally, we would like to continue to flesh out the "console" object that was introduced to web content in Firefox 4 and extended in Firefox 5.
