This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

Creates a new inline group in the Web Console log. This indents all following output by an additional level, until console.groupEnd() is called.

Note: This feature is available in Web Workers.




See Using groups in the console in the documentation of console for details.
