I use the Activity Window in Safari for debugging all the time, especially with Flash apps. I love that it not only displays the swf that's been loaded, but if that swf loads other swf files, jpg's, mp3's, etc. they all show up as well.

My non-Mac coworkers have been jealous of this feature for some time, and since it's not reason enough for them to buy Macs of their own, we've been trying to find something similar for them. Either a stand-alone app or a FireFox plugin, whatever.

Does anybody know of a PC solution that works like this?

Nothing quite as elegant

but Firefox has an extension called HTTP Headers that lists the activity.

As I said, it's unwieldy compared to the activity window in Safari, which I too use ALL that time, it's incredibly useful.

OnniWeb has had a similar window since version 4 at least (I never used any older versions). Not seem anything like it on the PC though.

I use the activity window all of the time too. I use it mostly for webdev, but even as a casual user it can be useful to see why things arent loading properly, if they ARE loading, et cetera. Sorry no idea of apps for windows.. the closest thing i can think of, which isnt very close, is that pesky device that would occasionally pop on windows when i had a page that needed to be "debugged" but it was unwieldy and nowhere near as nice as activity window which just SHOWS ACTIVITY. lol
