Watching form submission content go to the server

P: n/a
Hi,

Is there any way to watch regular form submission leave the browser? I
have a complicated dynamic form to learn about and instead of sorting
through the code I would like to see what is actually being sent to the
server when I click submit: The header, url, method, body etc. Is there
a feature in a browser or some special software to do this (Mac OS X
prefered.) Firefox's Firebug has a nice extension that shows this
information but only for Ajax requests.

Thank you,
Peter

I often use ethereal for that kind of things.

This won't work with crypted connections (https). If you need it then
let me know, I have a solution.
