Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Old and rusty. A compilation of bad things:

Editing behaviour of request body text field is unexpected:
You click in the field and the box grows in size, reflowing text. Then it annoys you further, by selecting the whole text, instead of letting the cursor just be.

If you type in the URL field, it suggests previous URLs (coming from the browser, not addon). Good! When you navigate with the arrow keys to the desired item and press Enter, the request is directly sent. Bad!

Animations are really slow and distracting.

In the header dropdown, you don't see all of the content, e.g. there is an entry "Content-Type: appli…" and another entry "Content-Type: appli…". ╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

When I add a OAuth key the first time, I have to remove the modal overlay manually using developer tools.

Today, when I added an OAuth key, deleted it and added another one, it sent the request with the previous key. FML

This addon was never finished and died a year ago. It seems the developer lost interest, given it was incarnated ca. 4 years ago and last commit is 1 year ago.

more elaborated, rich features Rated 5 out of 5 stars

nice. this has more sophisticated features i need.

PATCH Method Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For all the people who need PATCH method, just click on the 'Method' dropdown list and instead of choosing from the list of existing methods, start typing in the box. It's a combo box and it will allow you to type PATCH as the name of the method and you're good to go.

It would be nice though if developer would add PATCH method to the list of default methods.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Needs PATCH method!!!!! It's good for all the other http methods, but there's no PATCH support! And with more and more applications becoming ReSTful, and with frameworks like spring 4 / boot and other scaffolding-based frameworks, PATCH is a standard method for updating an entity. I will be using a different rest client until this one is fixed to support PATCH

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please add PATCH command to the REST client.

Muy bueno

Good Rated 3 out of 5 stars

One small thing came up my mind to bother me about RESTClient add-on is that can't render "Response Body (Preview)" when HTML returned from server. There is a small negative left padding exists somehow. Except that bug, it's flawless.

Update: Rating decreased 5 stars to 3 stars due to a few bugs/inabilities;
* You can't add more than one headers properly.
* No raw view for HTTP request (as Medlock Perlman mentioned below).
I hope developer will consider these comments for next release.

How to load old requests Rated 2 out of 5 stars

How to load old requests? I always type all content for once using it. They should be listed to select from history?

Very neat and clean Ui Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used a couple of chrome plugins as well. This one is neat and professional compared to those. Does the job very neat.

Great addin but unfortunately it's dead for a long time even being open sourced.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I can handle all my use cases

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't take the time to write reviews often. But I literally created an account so I can tell you NOT TO DOWNLOAD THIS.

I stupidly wasted a day chasing bugs that just happened to be resulting from this terrible extension.

Seriously, download SoapUI if you want reliable web service testing. You're way better off.

A considerable disappointment Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Poor usability and minimal documentation make it difficult to be sure you're formatting the request properly. There's also no facility to see the raw HTTP request.

This can mean you're wasting a lot of time chasing imaginary bugs. Avoid this abware like the plague.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good (enough) features, bad usability (XUL-based version was better), unfixed bugs. Sadly, this project seems to be dead.

Buggy
I cannot add headers after deleting any.

How to test HTTP PATCH method using REST client Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Its great tool to test REST web service for all HTTP method except PATCH HTTP method.I like to test HTTP PATCH method using REST Client. In method drop-down there is no option to use PATCH method. Please suggest

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really nice tool. Meets my requirements completely (simple POST requests).

Buggy Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Has problems with HEAD requests that return Content-Type application/json since it wants to parse the result but does not get one (HEAD never returns body). Won't use it anymore since I spent hours trying to find the bug in the server code...

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Sends Accept-Language and If-None-Match headers against your will. Receives a 304 respond due to the headers it set, yet displays 200 to you. Also, the interface is buggy, cannot add custom headers after some point. Awful tool overall, very bad to test your services.
