Description Heather Arthur [:harth] 2011-11-16 15:33:37 PST
The filter button for filtering console.log() etc messages should be renamed from "Web Developer".

I was talking to a web dev, and he said "I don't use that 'Web Developer' button, whatever that is". I remember an initial confusion with the naming too, and continuing confusion even though I know what it is now.

I suggest "Logging".
Comment 1 Dave Camp (:dcamp) 2011-11-16 15:40:58 PST
Yeah, that makes more sense to me.
Comment 2 Heather Arthur [:harth] 2011-11-18 11:45:26 PST
Commented in too, but I forgot to mention here that potch also suggested merging the 'Web Developer' options under 'JS'.

Respectfully disagree because of what I said in

Comment 7 Mihai Sucan [:msucan] 2011-11-19 07:19:35 PST
Axel: should we rename the property name as well?
Comment 8 Francesco Lodolo [:flod] 2011-11-19 08:26:51 PST
(obviously not Axel) Yes, please rename the property to make all localizers aware of this change. 

Not sure if the "page" explanation in the localization note is still needed, since "Logging" is easier to understand. Maybe this is enough?

# This is used as the label for the "Logging" button on the toolbar. It
# shows or hides messages that the web developer inserted on the page for
# debugging purposes, using calls such console.log() and console.error().
Comment 9 Sonny Piers [:sonny] 2011-11-19 09:26:45 PST
I think we should conserve the page explanation because others menus are about logging stuffs too.
Tell me what you think.

Still need to replace "Web Developer" with "Logging" here. Looks good otherwise. Thanks!
