Request Maker is a Chrome extension that serves as a tool for penetration testing.

Version adds proper browser action support since Chrome dropped the page action feature. Sorry for the delay, UI should now be easier to access!

Request Maker is a tool for penetration testing. With it you can easily capture requests made by web pages, tamper with the URL, headers and POST data and, of course, make new requests. Request Maker only captures requests sent via HTML forms and XMLHttpRequests; it doesn't fill the log with useless information about images and style sheets. The logs are tab-specific, displayed in the page action popup, and the requests are bookmarkable. After sending a request you can just click on the bookmark button like you would on any other page.

Me parece una aplicación muy buena; Tengo una consulta, como hace request maker para evadir el certificado SSL/TLS, como funciona?

Does the job! For those leaving bad ratings because they need more advanced stuff, just get something else like Postam.
