User Story

As a developer, i would like to be able to install an add-on that adds a protocol parser to the Mozilla websocket monitor so that I can display protocol specific information in the payload frames in the monitor, such as protocol control characters and payload and payload metadata. 

- Enlist community to write protocol specific parsers.
- Parsers help display payloads and payload metadata: for example, channel target of message, message content, etc

For example, for a websocket connection upgraded to socket.io, a protocol handler can be installed by a socket.io add-on to parse socket.IO specific traffic.

Protocol upgrade registration occurs during http WS handshake. A protocol identifier is passed. Please note that all protocol identifiers are necessarily registered with iana registration for websocket protocols: http://www.iana.org/assignments/websocket/websocket.xml

Please note bug 1197903 to be able to parse basic JSON and text payloads without protocol information.
