View HTTP headers in IE & Firefox

As a web developer I need to view HTTP headers between the client and server when I’m testing my web applications. There are a couple tools you can use to view HTTP headers as you surf. I use LiveHTTPHeaders for Firefox. For IE I used Fiddler. Fiddler is a cool tool that has breakpoints and some other debuggin features but sometimes I just want to view the plain HTTP header text.

I now have an IE plugin to view plain HTTP headers as I surf. This article in Digital Web Magazine hooked me up with the plugin. It also explains the basics of HTTP for all you newbies.
