HttpWatch 9.2 is now available for download and brings the level of SSL reporting in Firefox up to the same level as the plugin for IE and the iOS app.

SSL handshake timings are now displayed in Firefox:

We’ve also made some other SSL related improvements that are available in the Firefox/IE plugins and the HttpWatch Studio log file viewer. The first is that SSL information can now be added as columns in the main request grid:

Using HttpWatch with IE 11 and Windows 8.1

calendarDecember 9, 2013 in HttpWatch , Internet Explorer , SPDY

UPDATE: HttpWatch 9.3 now fully supports IE 11 on Windows 8.1 including Enhanced Protected Mode (EPM). Please refer to HttpWatch Supports 64-bit and EPM .

HttpWatch 9.1 is now available for download and adds support for IE 11 on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1:

IE 11 Support

If your HttpWatch Professional license key allows access to version 9.x you can simply download and run the latest setup program to get the update.

SPDY is disabled while HttpWatch is recording

Another limitation of HttpWatch on Windows 8.1 is that it currently does not support the SPDY protocol in IE 11 even though it is enabled by default:

SPDY in IE 11

While HttpWatch is recording any potential SPDY connections are downgraded to ordinary SSL/HTTPS connections. Again this limitation will be addressed in a future update to HttpWatch.
