What is RestMan?

RestMan is a highly efficient Chrome extension designed to interact with REST APIs over HTTP and HTTPS. It facilitates easy input of urls, method selection, and response tracking. Not just retaining the traditional HTTP methods such as GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, the extension accommodates PATCH as well. The extension features an improved history dialog, an HTML preview for responses, and a dark theme based on material design colors. Regular updates ensure the tool's performance remains optimized and resources are only utilized when in use.
