Packet capture on chromebooks

The excellent Stephen Gale shared a great tip recently on Google+.

In short, if you have a chromebook and were wishing for some packet capture software or other good network debugging tools, you just need to type "chrome://internals" into the address bar. There are also some great tools in Developer Mode, if you want to go that route. If you only want to know details about the current tab or page, you can go to the Developer Tools (which is different than Developer Mode, despite the similar names.)
