Chrome allows you to change frame from a dropdown list found at the bottom of the console window.

Opera has a dropdown for changing frame which is available from the “Console” and “Documents” tab. The dropdown will only appear on the “Console” tab if there are frames to select.

You can also get a list of any iframes on your page by using document.getElementsByTagName("iframe"); in the console.
