Here's a quick rundown of what every option does.

Clear console on page navigation

With this option turned off, logs are preserved unless you manually clear them. Turning this on automatically clears all logs whenever you refresh or go to another web page.

Listen to logs from only one device

Enabling this option improves performance by collecting logs from only the selected device rather than from all of them. This is especially useful when testing a very large number of devices.

Once enabled, choose a device from the device picker menu.

Warning Despite sounding similar, this option is different from log filtering. Selecting a device from the device picker while this option is disabled only filters out the logs from other devices—the actual logs are still collected. However, selecting a device while this option is enabled does not collect logs from the other devices at all.
