What's the best http analytics tool?

Seeking recommendations for http analytics tools in the vein of HTTP Analyzer and Charles. Firefox compatibility and the ability to view the page and the data at the same time are big plusses.

I've been doing a lot of that lately. The one I really dig is Web Scarab. It'll let you go through the whole session and just record what's going on so you can debug later.

I like the LiveHTTPHeaders and Web Developer extensions for Firefox, but I'm not sure what you're trying to watch so I'm not sure that they meet your needs.

Response by poster: I want to watch HTTP headers and follow redirects. I have the web developer extension. It's great, but so far as I can tell (haven't had it long), you have to choose one particular thing you're looking for each time you want to see it, and then it appears in a new tab and stays there, which seems a bit cumbersome.

LiveHTTPHeaders is an excellent one (just don't use it at the same time as SessionSaver as the two aren't compatible with one another). Anyhow, two others that may be of use are TamperData and ModifyHeaders (of which I haven't personally tried either).
