I spend the majority of my time working in Chrome. Whenever I’m working with a lot of JavaScript, I tend to print information to the console for review.

The thing is, typing alert() is much faster than typing console.log() but alert() is exceptionally more annoying. For those of you that want to save a few keystrokes, copy this simple script into a file and include it before any other JavaScript on your site:

alert = function(s) {

In Chrome, this will reroute all messages passed to the alert dialog and dump them out on the console.
