Internet Explorers' JavaScript console is a program to access all your JavaScript errors. The console will show you the line number and position of the error to the best of its ability. The console is accessible through the developer tools window.

To open the developer tools window, press F12. Once you press the F12 key the developer tools window opens in the bottom half of the browser window. Here you can examine the webpage's HTML, CSS, console, script, and more through its tabs.

After opening the developer tools console, click the "Console" tab. Here's where you will find all your JavaScript errors. IE9's Console displays similar error messages as Firefox's error console.

Unlike Firefox's Error Console, you will have to refresh the page you are troubleshooting with the Internet Explorer Console already open. To refreh the page, just press Ctrl + R. Now you will see your errors. Firefox's Error Console on the other hand will keep a running total of JavaScript errors for all of the pages you visit.
