Once WebCore has an implementation, it will be automatically available in the Inspector.

Reverting bug to its original intent.

Currently (as of r30941), our console support is as follows:

console.error, console.info, console.warn, and console.log exist, but each takes a single string parameter (as opposed to Firebug's format string + objects parameter list).

You can see our window.console object's IDL at http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/browser/trunk/WebCore/page/Console.idl

I'll take this.
Comment 7 Adam Roben (:aroben) 2008-03-10 18:14:37 PDT
I think it would be good to treat this as an umbrella bug and file sub-bugs about specific methods that are unsupported or specific differences between the behavior of our methods and Firebug's.

console.profile() and console.profileEnd()
Comment 9 Timothy Hatcher 2008-09-27 15:20:47 PDT
With the hard work of Keishi Hattori, we now support the entire console API. Closing this now!
