This tab will display all the http requests between IE and the web server.
The requests are grouped by page, with special icons for AJAX requests and time/cache information for each request.
The request entry color in the tree has the following meaning :
- Black entries : Normal requests. IE sent a request to the web server and server headers and data from the server were sent
- colored entries : 304 not modified requests. Ie sent a request to the web server which sent back only headers with "Not Modified" info (no data)
- gray entries : Cached requests. No request has been made by IE. The data is retrieved directly from IE cache.
By selecting a request in the requests tree, data corresponding to the selected button will be displayed :
- Headers : Display headers sent and received by IE, as well as POST data if the request is from an HTML form.
- Timing : Gives info about request time, connection time, dns resolution time
- Info & Cache : Gives info about request size and cache info
- : Parsing Post Data (before sending the request)
- : Connecting to the server
- : Waiting and downloading data from server
- : Redirect request (301)
- : HTML document received
- : CSS document received
- : Flash document received
- : Image received
- : Video received
- : Plain text document received
- : Unknown document type received
- : Request with errors
- : Unauthorized request returned by server (401)
- : AJAX request
- : AJAX request with errors
- : XML document received
- : XSL document received
- When IE7Pro or Google Gears Helper are installed, the HTTP(S) tab may not work anymore. This is due to a conflict between those add-on. They are using the same API to hook the headers and overwrite each-other.
