I'm facing some issues when I reload a particular web page; apparently the developer is not maintaining the state properly. So I want to view the browser console to check for any errors that might have happened.

Is there a way to see the error console in Sailfish Browser? And how do you debug websites in the browser, in general?

Here you go. Hope this helps you: https://sailfishos.org/wiki/Sailfish_OS_Cheat_Sheet#Browser_Diagnostics_.2F_Debugging

Added a small set of tips and tricks that can be used to debug browser. Also added info about user-agent overrides that is in my opinion rather simple approach. It's also simple to contribute to these if one likes :).

Thank you! Great that it's being Tracked by Jolla!

Looks to me, that this has been "tracked by Jolla", as @rainemak enhanced the SailfishOS-Wiki page to provide a solution.

P.S.: If the "SailfishOS cheat-sheet" page now answers your question, you (@addydon) might close it.

Is there a way to look at network requests also?
