As a developer I sometimes need to be able to make GET/POST requests without having a form on the page. Are there any plug-ins that allow me to submit GET/POST requests to a specified page and then see the results?

Looks good, but how do i write a POST request? Can you link me to a tutorial or a manual or something? – qwerty Oct 10 '11 at 17:14
@qwerty It depends on the web application, doesn't it? Look for the webapp's API docs. – Jin Oct 10 '11 at 17:18
Does it really? How does the browser tell which webapp is running on the server before it submits the HTTP request? And what exactly do you mean by "webapp", i don't quite get what you're saying. – qwerty Oct 10 '11 at 17:27
@qwerty I'm not sure what you're asking either, but you can take a look at this. – Jin Oct 10 '11 at 17:48
Sorry for the confusion, but that link helped! Though i found a plugin for firefox that was even easier to use, it's called UrlParams. Thanks for the help! – qwerty Oct 10 '11 at 19:52

You can try POSTMAN.

It works good for making HTTP requests and debugging and I like its UI.

How can we stop the automatic Accept-Encoding headers? – Pacerier Apr 12 '15 at 16:38

XHR Poster is great, lets you save some requests, and shows the response nicely formatted. The results panel is tabbed so you can see many results after doing new requests.
