When using Chrome to debug, I find it incredibly difficult to be efficient due to the fact that I don't see how I can force the "Network" tab of the developer tools to show the full request URI.

It will show the full URI if you hover the link and wait a second, but this is incredibly counterproductive.

All of my AJAX requests are sent to ajax.php, and handled by using query string arguments, like:


... etc.

Since I use AJAX extensively, my network tab is filled with "ajax.php", but I have to manually hover each and every entry to find the request I am looking for.

Surely there has got to be another way!?

I am constantly fed up by something new in Firefox and immediately force myself back into Chrome, but it is always the developer tools in Chrome that keep me from using it for an extended period of time.

Hopefully I can find out how to do this so I can continue using Chrome as my numero uno.

This is not currently possible. However, there is active work being done on Chrome Dev tools (e.g., and you can make a suggestion for an option of this feature.

This is not something that can be done in Chrome, sorry. In addition, there has been no word about any changes that will be made to the developer panel, so I would not expect this to be added soon.

Some columns contain a primary field and a secondary field (Time and Latency, for example). When viewing the Network table with large resource rows both fields are shown; when using small resource rows only the primary field is shown.
