Hi,

While using jsbin, I was able to figure out only one way (until now) to clear the console was to toggle the console tab (to hide the console pane and show it again). While doing this I lose the (width/height) adjustments that I have made to other panes. Just got a thought that it would have been a better experience if the console pane would have had a dropdown like javascript pane (that shows options to select javascript, coffeescript etc). Here we can have option to clear the console.

If you know how to clear the devtools console you'll know how to clear this
one. But I'll add it to the keyboard shortcuts.

Just realised in jsbin it's ctrl+L (not cmd+L)

Also remembered that you can type :clear in the console and :help - but I want to update the keyboard shortcuts anyway.

The shortcut is nice.
Rather than a dropdown, might it still not be useful to display an
icon in the top right corner of the console section that when clicked
would clear jsbin's console, similar to the "Clear console log." icon
in Chrome's Developer console?
