Chrome extension to test RESTFul services

Hi all

Just found a great tool to quickly build HTTP requests to test REST Services : Postman is its name.

Web interface is neat and simple, you can store your requests under Collections, control headers, follow "rel" style links, and so on.

The tool supports authentication as well, I tested quickly simple auth and it works great.

On top of that, you can dynamize your requests with some attributes, i.e. test the same request against several environments using a http://{{serverName}}/rest/... syntax.
