I know how to do it in Firefox - how do I see Javascript errors in Chrome?

share|improve this question

You have following options:

  • Chrome: Press Ctrl+Shift+J (Cmd+Option+J on Mac) and it will give similar functionality. Also consider checking out JavaScript debugger in Chrome. Hitting F12 works as well.

  • IE7: Nothing built in. But have a look at IE Developer Toolbar.

  • IE8: Just hit F12 and you will get access to some very capable built-in tools. Error console is on Script tab.

  • Firefox: Just use FireBug.

  • Opera: Press Ctrl+Shift+I (Cmd+Option+I on Mac) to launch Opera Drangonfly which is a fully featured development and debugging tool integrated into the Opera browser.

  • Safari: Enable the Developer Menu from Safari's preferences. It will give access the various tools (Error Console, Web Inspector, JavaScript Profiler, etc). Of course there are also shortcuts, like Cmd+Alt+C for the console.

found it myself: developer tools, then there's a symbol at the bottom left "show console"

For other options, see and… (though written for Safari, many things are based on WebKit). – Arjan Oct 7 '09 at 13:54

Any of these:

  • Hit F12 or Ctrl+Shift+I
  • right-click on any element on the page, and "Inspect Element"
  • Wrench button -> Tools -> Developer Tools

Then go to Console tab

Also, when you are viewing are a page, right-click, select 'Inspect element'

This opens Developer tools in html inspector mode - select 'console' and you can view errors by clicking 'errors' at the bottom
