HTTP Trace is a Chrome version of the LiveHTTPHeaders Firefox plugin.  When clicked, it will keep track of all of the HTTP requests/responses from the current tab in a new popup window.  This let's you easily see all of the redirects a particular request went through before finally landing on the resulting page.
Risk impact

HTTP Trace requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install HTTP Trace if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

HTTP Trace is very likely to contain malware and should not be trusted. Avoid installing.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Pops up a box with 3 buttons (Pause, Clear, Close) which indicates it is already running. However, it does not capture anything. Terrible
