Like a lot of people in this industry I have a sick and twisted addiction to refreshing (shout out to F5). I probably spend a solid hour a day refreshing on placements and seeing whats running out there.
As an AM its fun seeing the trail of headers to check where the affiliate is buying traffic, which aff network they’re running with and if the offer is brokered through 240934 networks. I use httpfox for this (get it if you have the same addiction or you’re a fellow AM).
Now, my new fetish is doing this in mobile apps but I’ve yet to find a good headers tool for mobile.
Has anyone found one they dig?
I use Chrome Canary for this. It is mostly for dev’s so it has some nice features like "Emulation"
Yep, I also use Chrome emulation. There are a few good header addons for Chrome – Live Http Headers is available on Chrome now (thanks to Smaxor for the tip on that!).
