Option to stick back to bottom of build console if user scrolls the page

To whom it may concern,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when a user is watching the build console through the web interface, the page defaults to jumping to the bottom of the console as new lines appear that don't fit on the page. However, if a user scrolls at any point, the page will no longer jump to the bottom, forcing the user to manually scroll down as new lines appear.

It would be nice to have an option somewhere on the page that manually activates/deactivates this feature. Maybe a button on the bottom of the window that says "jump to bottom" if the user has scrolled anywhere else on the page (and when this button is pressed, the window sticks to the bottom of the page until the user scrolls again).

Maybe this feature already exists and I missed it? If not, food for thought :)

Best regards,
