JSON in the Chrome Inspector

Sometimes you get back JSON data in a browser window, and it would be nice to just check it out without having to fire up anything else, or muck with copy/pasting. A quick Google search implies you need an extension for Chrome, but there is a simple (if somewhat buried) way to browse JSON objects with the Inspector: in the Network tab, select your source and then the Preview tab (beside the Headers tab). Enjoy!
