JavaScript Console in Chrome

For testing things quickly in JavaScript, open the JavaScript Console in the Google Chrome browser. View menu > Developer > JavaScript Console.

You’ll see the console at the bottom of the current page.

The console gives you a command line so you can test short pieces of code to see what they do.

If you want to use the console as a stand-alone window, undock it with the button in the lower left corner.

You can keep the window open for quick access while you’re learning JavaScript.
