Forum Thread: Is the JavaScript Console (On Modern Browsers) There to Do Anything?

I've once opened it by accident, while playing Cookie Clicker a few years ago.

Now that I look back at it, I begin to wonder. Is there any purpose that the JavaScript console serves other than giving me infinite cookies in Cookie clicker?

Can I find security vulnerabilities/security flaws with it?
(I have a mini-website (owned by me) that I've been wanting to practice on). Will the JS Console help?

Does the JS Console do anything?

You can very easily get the plain text of any asterisk-hidden password field on websites.

I also use it to look for hidden pages some times but it isnt very good for that.

It can let you change stuff to an extent and view hidden passwords. I am sure there is a ton it can do else browsers wouldnt have it
