Down and Dirty with Chrome Developer Tools

Store as Global

The dev tools allow you to pick a scoped variable and automatically store a reference to it globally. This is convenient in debugging an application where you want to continuously inspect the contents of an object as a global variable.

Right click a Scope Variable and select Store as Global Variable. The console will immediately output the temporary name of the now globally available variable.

Audits Note: A beta version of Chrome may be necessary for this feature.
