HTTP requests using the browser console

I want to test a download link from the broswer console by using HTTP requests:

So when doing this, the console tells me:

get http://wallbase.cc/wallpaper/3023660;
SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier
get "http://wallbase.cc/wallpaper/3023660";
SyntaxError: Unexpected string


So how do you actually make HTTP calls from the console and viewing the response?

Thanks

Answer

Depending on browser you have to enable persistent network logging. It's available on both Firefox and Chrome.

Then in the console just execute window.location = 'http://wallbase.cc/wallpaper/3023660'.

Check the network log and you'll get your response header, body, etc.
