Microsoft Visual Studio 2013
Click on 'New Project'.
Select ASP.NET Empty Web Application, give it an awesome name (my awesome name here is, "WebApplication2"), and click 'OK'.
WebApplication2 - Microsoft Visual Studio
Out of the box, an empty web project gives you just about nothing...

Name it anything you like.
Run your project
Changing it up... Use console.log

Here's what you will see... I personally use Chrome most of the time, but you can do this in any modern browser.
