Let me quickly introduce an interesting add-on for Firefox to you. It’s called HttpRequester and it’s a very very useful add-on for basically any developer.
What it does, it enables you to quickly send an HTTP request using a method which is not easily done through the browser (PUT/POST/DELETE).
You can also use a “browser view” instead of a plain-text view.
It also contains a history of your previous requests so when you click on a previous request you can see what previously happen and you can execute it again.
There’s even an option to save/load previous requests and to view raw request info.
All in all, a very useful little add-on that stays out of your way when you don’t need it and when you do, it’s immediately available. If your primary browser for development is Firefox, I strongly suggest you give this add-on a try.
