What is the simplest way of sending an HTTP POST to a localhost address/port under Windows?
E.g. do any browser plugins exist to do this or could a command be sent in the Chrome Developer Tools / Firebug console?
[Have seen similar q's asked before but the answers mostly seem to recommend the use of Unix tools such as CURL or Websites such as http://www.hurl.it, which preclude sending the request to localhost.]
Advanced REST Client usually. I assume it works offline too(never tried it though as my Internet is always on).
I think the plugin is available for firefox too. Just google
