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?

Simple REST Client. No frills, gets the job done.

  • Looks good, but how do i write a POST request? Can you link me to a tutorial or a manual or something?

  • @qwerty It depends on the web application, doesn't it? Look for the webapp's API docs.

  • 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 I'm not sure what you're asking either, but you can take a look at this. jmarshall.com/easy/http/#postmethod

  • 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!

You can try POSTMAN.

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

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.
