Developers want to see the HTML response of HTTP requests in a formatted way to be able to easily read the contents. This is especially useful for error responses, which are not output on the website.
This is a follow up for bug 1211525 It should be possible to preview XML/HTML HTTP responses as nicely rendered markup (inside the Response tab). Honza

Removing that feature from the network tab was really frustrating. Debugging API errors from Django got a lot harder since 500s come with a HTML stacktrace (when debug is set to True). That should facilitate development but currently is actually making it harder since we have to copy the HTML from the Response pane into a .html file an then open it.
When will be this feature available ? Why it has been removed ? Need to use Chrome to see Laravel / .net answer in rendered HTML.
It was removed in bug 1350229 due to the incorrect assumption that it duplicates functionality. It will be added back again in bug 1353319. Note that this report report is different, because it asks to add the HTML preview to the console. Sebastian
