Stage 1: Definition

1. Feature overview

This feature tracks work that was originally blended into the WebConsole7 feature, but not completed for Firefox 7.

When the Web Console shipped with Firefox 4, it provided the first console object to be always available to content in Firefox. It provided enough of the console object to be useful (console.log being by far the most popular method on the object). However, it was still lacking in features that developers commonly use.

2. Users & use cases

You can open up the Web Console and type console.dir(window) and see a set of properties and values from the window object in the console object.

In a JavaScript program, you can use and console.groupEnd to visually group together related log messages.

3. Dependencies


4. Requirements

  • The console object implements the portion of the API that is implemented by both Firebug and WebKit. Notably, this includes time, timeEnd, dir, group and groupEnd.
