Hey all, wanted to make a new note here. The Chrome Extension I provided has proven to be a really good serial monitor for debugging or if you need to reset a setting manually (i.e. WiFi). You can take advantage of it by simply hitting "Inspect" and finding the Console output after setting the Serial port you want to use.
It also helps you identify your device's IP address, especially if you connect the ESP32 to your main network and have no clue what the new IP is supposed to be. This is the absolute easiest way to solve this problem now. Your device outputs its WiFi IP on boot, so it shows up in your console automatically when the device is connected via USB.
You can also send commands by using the Command interface in the Data menu after Setting the device, or by typing in "serialMonitor.sendMessage("x")" where x is a valid command. Some of the debug commands only output responses on USB connection due to speed.
