This is a feedback from https://twitter.com/glenmaddern.

Esc key focuses on the console prompt line, unless:
— the text cursor is in a text field (e.g. the global search field at the top right corner, filter fields, etc.)
— the text cursor is in the styles sidebar
— the text cursor is inside of any CodeMirror view
— DOM node content/attribute is being edited in Elements
— there is a text selection
— <select> menu is opened
— autocomplete suggestion is opened
— a message in the Console tab is already selected (needs two Esc presses to focus on the prompt, not one)

The list goes on and on.

We need a keyboard shortcut that would just focus on the console prompt so one could press it with their eyes closed and start typing console commands, no matter which more they're in.
