The Javascript console supports the concept of sessions. You can save the session with a name, close your browser, and later come back, reload the session and resume where you left off. When you save a session, the following pieces of information are saved:

  • Console output
  • Command history
  • User-defined global variables

The following commands are used for session management:

  • session.list(): Lists the saved sessions
  • session.load(name): Loads the named session
  • session.remove(name): Removes the named session
  • session.removeAll(): Removes all saved sessions
  • Saves the named session
