Every modern web browser should have an error console. This is a piece of software that is used to troubleshoot errors on a webpage. It is common to troubleshoot JavaScript through the error console of a web browser.

Going to the error console is a common initial step when troubleshooting an issue on a webpage. The error console is a place in your browser to keep track of all your JavaScript errors. You can view your error console to get helpful information about the error, like which line of code it's on, and a description of what kind or error it is.

Most of the time you will be able to find and correct your error using the error console. The error console is great for finding typos or missing closing punctuation marks. Test your JavaScript code in all major browsers. Sometimes your script will work in one browser and not another.
