Due to Firebug's different layout, it is possible to collapse all other tabs
but the console. For JavaScript engineers, the console is the most often used
feature of the Web Inspector, and I'd like to propose to find a way to show it

Why? It dramatically improves working with the Web Inspector on smaller screens
(read: any resolution smaller than 1920x1080), since a lot of the vertical real
screen estate is lost, and for many, opening the Inspector in a seperate window
isn't a real solution because we'd like to have the console information sticky
with the current website in one visual place.

I therefore propose to implement one or many of the following way to display
the console independently:

1) Make Inspector and Console entirely independent layout wise, so each can be
disabled and enabled within the Developer menu
2) Implement a "console only" button somewhere
3) Make the current console button a three-way toggler to either enable,
disable or exclusively show the console

My personal vote goes to 1 and 3, but I'd be very hapyp (and many others too!)
with any of the solutions.
