New Line in Chrome's Console

The Chrome Conundrum

When I want to run a small piece of code, I generally run to Chrome's console (⌘ - Option - J).

The difficulty is when you have larger pieces of code and a new line would make your life a lot easier and more readable.

How many times have I hit Return and accidentally submitted code, when I really just wanted a new line?

Enough times that I stopped using the console and started writing unit tests for everything.

The good: I'm now very good at writing unit tests.
The bad: Test setup can take a bit of time.

The Functional, Frugal Fix

When you want a new line in Chrome, type Option - Return.
