            Bug ID: 138726
           Summary: Web Inspector: Provide $e in the console for the

When pausing on exceptions it can be difficult or impossible to interact with the actual thrown exception object. For example breaking on an uncaught exception, there is no named reference to the thrown value that would otherwise have been available in "catch (e)". We can provide a named reference in the console, such as "$e".


    <button id="x">Click Me</button>
    var times = 0;
    document.getElementById('x').addEventListener('click', function() {
        if (times === 1)
        if (times === 2)
            throw "string error";
        if (times === 3)
            throw null;
        if (times === 4)
            throw document;

1. Inspect test page
2. Enable break on all exceptions
3. Click the button on the page to trigger exceptions
  => should be able to get the different thrown values (Errors / objects) via "$e" in the console.
