Debugging AJAX in Chrome

It has always really bugged me that in Chrome, when you want to view the response and form data for an AJAX request listed in the console, you have to go through multiple annoying clicks to view these two pieces of data, which are also on separate tabs. There is a great Chrome extension though called AJAX-Debugger that gets you all the info you need on the console. However, it also suffered from the having-to-click-through problem for the request data (5th object deep in an object nest), and it did not support JSONP. I’ve gone ahead and fixed these 2 problems :-).


Now to get around to making the other Chrome plugin I’ve been needing for a while ... (Automatic devtool window focus when focusing its parent window)


[Edit on 2015-08-20 @ 8:10am] I added another patch to the Chrome extension to atomically run the group calls (otherwise, they sometimes showed out of order).

Also, the auto focusing thing is not possible as a pure extension due to chrome API inadequacies. While it would be simple to implement using an interval poll via something like Auto Hot Key, I really hate [the hack of] making things constantly poll to watch for something. I’m thinking of a hybrid chrome extension+AHK script as a solution.
