    Thanks for pointing this out! This makes it much easier to debug HTTPS problems (for which a packet sniffer is nearly useless).

    http://livehttpheaders.mozdev.org/ does something similar for Mozilla.

    I came across IEHttpHeaders a while back, but found it’s feature set somewhat lacking for my purposes. Now I use Fiddler (http://www.fiddlertool.com), another free and more featured HTTP debugger.

    I use Fiddler constantly at work. It’s fantastic.
