Add the ability to clear the console log through menu and/or hotkey. When running small programs this can be achieved via cls command, but when running a program with a long session and verbose output, console log can become quite extensive.

Real life example: Running a webserver, most application deploys with debug output create a huge log. When running some test over a deployed application, some console output is expected for debuggin purposes. Clearing the console allows me to now instatly which part of the log belongs to my tests, and which to other deployments, while still scrolling to see the last output. This can also be helpful to avoid mixing stacktraces between different test attempts.
