Yeah, those are good points. Every web browser is almost like it's own OS.
But you could even set out the rule that the reader could use FireFox, Chrome or Edge and then say, "ok, hit F12" (dev tools)
type: 2+2<enter>

Works in all 3 of those browsers.
After that, there's a lot you could teach directly from the console.
I think a lot of books that try to teach JavaScript do overwhelm with all the node.js, extra libraries (even jQuery) stuff.
If you're learning JavaScript you should learn the good old fashioned way.
document.getElementByID(), etc. Smile | :)
