Firebug console Object Degradation

If you are using firebug’s console object to print messages to firebug this will break functionality for clients that are not using firebug(which is everyone). Here is a small bit that I found on Firebug Lite that solves this problem:

if (! ("console" in window) || !("firebug" in console)) {
    var names = ["log", "debug", "info", "warn", "error", "assert", "dir", "dirxml", "group"
                 , "groupEnd", "time", "timeEnd", "count", "trace", "profile", "profileEnd"];
    window.console = {};
    for (var i = 0; i <names.length; ++i) window.console[names[i]] = function() {};
}
