In my previous post, I mentioned two online consoles that will help you develop your JS coding skills efficiently.
Like text editors, there are a lot of options available, many with different functions, abilities, and features, to meet the needs of the user.

Basically, a console lets you write and run your Javascript code inside the same browser page. Essentially, you require a browser to display any Javascript output.

Many courses teach students to use the console that’s built into Chrome or Firefox. I find using the browser console cumbersome when writing lot’s of code and all the code above your most current scripts are hidden.

Online consoles provide a much cleaner UX and easier to use.
You can also save your code, run your code, and even switch to another programming language.
My suggestion is to try experimenting with one, or all of the sites listed below. This would be the best way to see what tools best work in your situation.
