Type on the console:

 a = [[1,1],[1,1]]

And you will see:


That is as uninformative as it gets, and in order to understand your structure you have to click click click click (and don't expect a good formatting). I have to JSON.stringify every data before console.loging. Why is it so uninformative, and can I config it for more usefulness?

Not a Javascript guru so this isn't an answer, but it looks like it's displaying the type of the object you just created. What would you expect it to print? – user55325 Jan 10 '14 at 3:45
