I use Chrome all the time on my MBP, but have been using Firefox with HttpFox when I need to debug bad web pages.
HttpFox is a debugging proxy, it shows every request (GET, POST, etc.) with all the parameters, cookies, etc.
and the response, with cookies, headers, etc.

I have been looking and looking for an equivalent for Chrome (or other Webkit) browsers.

What is this thing? Is it what I've been searching for this past 12 months?

Click on the wrench thingie next to the address bar. Choose Tools, then Developer Tools.

One of the developer tools is an equivalent of HttpFox. The others... well, I just downloaded Chrome 10 minutes ago and I haven't done much poking around. But it looks like a pretty comprehensive set of tools.

Then click on "network"

Looks pretty cool. has timings for each resource, etc.

Thanks for the pointer and thanks to @Bear
