Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is there an opensource (read free) tool that allows me to see my browsers HTTP commands?


Why would an ordinary (non-programmer) computer user be even remotely interested in this?

Before you say it, I know that programmers also check out SuperUser. But as someone looking for this kind of information, I would expect it to reside on SO, not SU.

The OP even specifies that the purpose is to observe AJAX interactions, something which a SuperUser could not care less about.

The question is opened now. I doubt anyone will try to close it again, so I'm voting to close this discussion as "No longer relevant" – Adam Davis Dec 18 '09 at 17:51

I disagree with closing or migrating it - understanding protocols is a core skill for programmers(everything is an interface, after all).

I'm voting to open it - it'll remain on both sites once opened again.

Oddly enough, it was never actually migrated to, it was just closed. I'm guessing there wasn't a clear majority in favor of migrating it. Looks like it's re-opened now, though.
