Details

When using console.group() and console.groupEnd() all they do is indent the messages.  The items could be better grouped together visually, and could be collapsed.

Also console.group('Title') seems like it would sensibly create a group with a headline 'Title'.  Instead it seems equivalent to console.group(); console.log('Title');.  I don't see any reason for console.group to take an argument unless it is treated distinctly from console.log().

Firebug offers an example of how to better display groupings.

The method name itself is suggesting that group should be collapsed. Imagine my surprise when it wasn't and its contents were polluting the console (stack traces are ugly :)

Please fix this.
