Live HTTP Header Tool for FF

5 comments

I came across this today Live HTTP Headers tool for FF . Unsurprisingly it does what it says on the box, gives you the headers live. If you switch your User Agent, its quick to see what is being fed to GBot.

So if you are checking on whether some B is 302ing you, could be a faster way of getting the headers than the clunky way I do it at the moment.

I am indebted to a contributor of the Jagger Update thread at WMW for discovering this little nugget.

It handles redirects.. what does the other tool show you the Live HTTP Headers miss ?

doh

excuse my stupidity! I'd just been using the headers tab from the page info box, and not the rather good live HTTP headers box.
